Adrian Bevington has stepped down from his advisory position with Aston Villa.
Bevington joined the club in March to review and evaluate the managerial position and playing staff at the club.
However, Villa have confirmed his departure in a statement, with Bevington saying: “There is a huge amount of work ahead for Aston Villa FC.
A club of its size with its great support should be competing at the higher levels of the Premier League, not in the position it currently finds itself.
“To move forward, now more than ever, it is crucial the club makes the right calls on the big decisions it is faced with.
“I wish everyone at Aston Villa FC and its supporters every success for the future.”
