Aston Villa are set to hold talks with boss Paul Lambert over a new contract, according to the Daily Mail.

Lambert, who took over at Villa in 2012, has 17 months remaining on his current deal, but it seems he is impressing the club’s board.

The Villains are currently 10th in the Premier League - an improvement on last season, when Lambert’s side were involved in a fight to avoid relegation.

They have, however, won only three of 12 games at Villa Park this season, and this problematic home form has left them only five points above the drop zone.

The club were also knocked out of the FA Cup by League One outfit Sheffield United, resulting in some calls for Lambert to be sacked.

His philosophy of building a team around youngsters has drawn praise from many, but some fans may question the decision of the board, wanting to wait until the end of the season.

But, the hierarchy at the club must have seen something they like, and the Scotsman is now in line to receive an improved offer.
