Aston Villa owner Randy Lerner remains 100% committed to the club after deciding to sell Cleveland Browns, Paul Faulkner has said.

Lerner has opted to sell the NFL franchise, prompting some speculation that he could follow the same path with Villa whom he bought six years ago.

But Villa chief executive Faulkner is adamant that is not the case and Lerner has already spent nearly £10million on new signings for manager Paul Lambert this summer.

Faulkner told the Express and Star: "The Browns situation means absolutely nothing with regard to Aston Villa - neither good nor bad.

"The big point that people sometimes forget is that he inherited Cleveland Browns. He bought Aston Villa.

"Any rumors that Randy could be thinking about getting out or losing interest is nonsense."
