Paul Lambert insists that he wants to stay as Aston Villa manager even if owner Randy Lerner sells the club.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has insisted that he has no plans to leave his position at the club regardless if owner Randy Lerner sells up.

The American businessman revealed that he will address questions regarding his future at the end of the season.

However, Lambert has claimed that he will tell either Lerner or a potential new owner that he wants to remain as manager at the Midlands outfit.

"I honestly don't know [if Lerner will sell]," Lambert told reporters. "I'm being totally honest with you. I'm not privy to what goes on on that side of it.

"If a new owner comes in, you have a conversation, that's normal, but I fully intend to be here. That's me being totally honest. If people come in, you sit with them and see what happens.

"If they don't, you sit with Randy, which I intend to do at the end of the season, and Randy will say what he's got to say. I fully intend to be here."

Lerner took over at Villa in 2006.
