Former Browns owner Randy Lerner puts Premier League club Aston Villa up for sale

Former Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner says he is looking to sell Premier League club Aston Villa.

Lerner's announcement on Monday comes at the end of another season when the central England club came close to relegation.

The American businessman says "I feel further that now is the time for me to look for new ownership and thus new leadership."

Lerner bought Villa in 2006 and says "the last several seasons have been week-in, week-out battles."
