Steve Bruce will continue as Aston Villa manager with "full support" after positive talks with the club's new owners.

Simon McCahon had a suggestion where Bruce possibly has a role "behind the scenes" as director of football at Villa with Henry bossing the first team.

It is understood new majority shareholders Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens have been keen to appoint Henry as they look to bring a new attacking edge to the club.

Bruce has recently stated that he did not necessarily fear for his job despite the ownership change.

Aston Villa confirm that Steve Bruce will remain as manager following the club's takeover, despite speculation linking Arsenal legend Thierry Henry with the post.

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.
