According to Reuters, Aston Villa has conditionally agreed a two-year sponsorship deal with internet company 32Red. 32Red will pay Villa a "basic six figure sum per season" and Villa players will wear the company's logo on their home and away shirts starting next season.
The "arrangement" secures initial seasonal payments and a potential share in revenue drawn from 32Red's "online services."
Poor Villa. Just when Man U gets the big one... Not exactly the smartest move, but Villa must be desperate.
