Aston Villa fans may very well be pleased with the amount of investment the club's new owners are willing to make.  

Billionaires Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, who took over the club in August last year, have injected a little over £22 million into the Birmingham club via a share issue, a filing at Companies House reveals. 

22,409,659 shares have been allotted by Aston Villa Football Club Limited, a subsidiary of the club's parent company, Recon Group UK, at £1 each, the filing shows, with 100 per cent of the value being paid at the time of issue.
