The former Tottenham and Blackburn player joins as manager of the Villains on a deal which will take him through to the end of the 2017-18 season.

Sherwood had been out of work since the end of last season when he left his post as manager of Tottenham Hotspur. He joins only days after chairman Randy Lerner had dismissed Paul Lambert, a disappointing 2-0 loss away at Hull which saw Villa drop into the relegation zone proving the final straw.

It had been reported in the Daily Mail that the gilet-wearing former footballer was still a target for managerless QPR, who parted company with 67-year-old Harry Redknapp, but that has turned out not to be the case.

Aston Villa have been incredibly poor this season, managing only 12 goals in 20 Premier League matches.

They have lost their last five matches on the trot, and Sherwood certainly faces a mammoth task to turn the sinking ship around. He clearly feels it is an achievable goal however, and is ready to give it his all.
