Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish will hold talks with club owner Randy Lerner in the next 24 hours which will decide whether he will pay the price for a season of underachievement, Press Association Sport understands.
Lerner will fly in from the United States to speak with McLeish along with chief executive Paul Faulkner in the aftermath of Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Norwich, which was described as "woeful" by the manager.
Sections of fans again called for the former Birmingham boss to be axed as Villa ended the campaign just two points clear of the bottom three.
