Lawyer out to gazump Lerner with £70m bid


By Nick Harris , Published: 16 August 2006




"The battle for control of Aston Villa took another twist last night when the London-based lawyer heading the so-called "AV06 consortium" told The Independent his group will be "indefatigable in our efforts to secure the club" from under the nose of the American billionaire Randy Lerner, whose £63m offer has already been recommended to shareholders.


Nicholas Padfield QC, a deputy high court judge, pushed the British credentials of his consortium last night amid speculation that a £70m offer is imminent. "This is by no means over," he said. "We are indefatigable in our efforts to secure the club because we have the club's interests at heart. We are not American, and want to fly the flag."
