Aston Villa have had more capital injected into their holding company by Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens.
The billionaire owners have added £30m into NSWE UK Limited in the form of shares at the value of £1.
The company, which was formerly named Recon Group UK Limited, was altered in October last year following the change in ownership from Tony Xia to the aforementioned duo.
A filing shown on Companies House from October 14 has shown the investment – with no further details.
Birmingham Live spotted injection of cash and have speculated that the funds will be used to finance daily operations or pay off debts.
Large investments have happened on more than one occasion since Sawiris and Edens took over in July of 2018, and the largest payment was as much as £57m in October of 2019.
Vill managed to stay in the Premier League this season following a huge investment after their 2019 promotion, and have followed that up with another large spending spree.
Ollie Watkins, Matty Cash, Emiliano Martinez and Bertrand Traore have all come in and helped Smith’s men to three wins from their first three league games of the season.
Their manager said after the recent 7-2 over Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool : “It was just sheer hard work and effort. The work ethic, when Jurgen Klopp says wow to you, you know you’ve done something right.
“The lads were superb, they executed the game plan perfectly. We were at our best today.
“The biggest regret is that there were no supporters here with us – I hope they are enjoying it from their homes. It was a tremendous achievement for the players, they worked really hard.
“If you get outworked by Liverpool, they beat you because they’ve got fabulous talent. Even at 5-2 you’re not sure if that’s enough because of how good they are.”
