“We know that it’s probably more difficult than the Premier League. It has many, many former Premier League teams, they are looking to get back into the Premier League, like we do.”
Villa chief executive Keith Wyness added: “The Premier League is still the most important league in the world, is still shown in over 200 countries, and we know that Aston Villa should be playing in that league and at the top.
“Our priority for this next season must be to win promotion back to the Premier League.”
