Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce reportedly wants his future to be resolved urgently, as owner Tony Xia has yet to tell him if he will still be in charge come next season.
Steve Bruce is reportedly still waiting to be told whether he will stay on as Aston Villa manager for another season.
The Championship side face a period of financial uncertainty after missing out on their target of promotion to the Premier League this term.
Villa need to cut their wage bill substantially and have already decided against renewing John Terry's contract, while prized asset Jack Grealish may also be sold this summer.
Amid the boardroom panic and confusion, The Telegraph claims that owner Tony Xia has not yet formally told Bruce if he will be in the Villa Park dugout come August.
Bruce, appointed in October 2016, is said to want the matter resolved urgently, and he will only remain if he is given the full support of Villa's hierarchy.
