Bruce "absolutely delighted" to be staying with Villa

Arsenal legend and former Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry has been strongest linked to becoming the next Aston Villa manager.

Bruce has several faults, but at the end of the day, he gives Aston Villa the best chance to succeed, at least initially.

Sawiris is said to want "day-to-day" involvement in the football club.

The US will also sanction companies in third countries, such as Morocco, from trading both with Iran and the US. Mr Johnson even goes over the head of Whitehall and urges British businesses directly to cut ties with Iran.

Bruce and the Villa team travelled separately to the friendly clash with West Ham at Walsall on Wednesday evening following the meeting.

Bruce did not speak to media after the match, but Hammers winger Robert Snodgrass, who played for Bruce at Hull, hailed the decision.

"Aston Villa can confirm manager Steve Bruce has met majority owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens and will continue as manager with their full support", read an official club statement.

He can keep the ball and give us - I don't want to say time to rest - but time to keep the ball as a team. A revelation in his first season at Anfield with 44 goals in all competitions, Salah is now a marked man.

"We're aware with that type of player that there's going to be lots of interest, but all I can do is say to him that I want to keep our best players if we can", said Rowett.

There are serious problems mounting off the pitch at Villa, with failure to land promotion back to the Premier League causing the club major financial difficulties.

The 57-year-old's future has been uncertain since Dr Tony Xia flogged a controlling 55 per cent stake in the club to Egyptian billionaire Nassef Sawiris and American financier Wes Edens last week.

Asked if Canada would rejoin the NAFTA talks next week, Guajardo said, "Hopefully". "Deal with Mexico is coming along nicely". Canada's foreign minister recently said the country is ready to resume NAFTA talks "as quickly and intensively as possible".

According to the Star, Henry is on the verge of replacing Steve Bruce as the owners do not have faith in Bruce's ability to lead them back into the Premier League.
