Remi Garde will consider staying as Aston Villa head coach if he is give assurances over his control in the transfer window, the Telegraph reports.
The French boss took charge of the club earlier this season, and has not managed to get out of the club out of the bottom three.
They are all-but resigned to relegation, and there is a belief that Garde will leave Villa Park this summer rather than lead the club in the Championship.
He has a good enough reputation to walk into a top flight job, and even his struggles at Villa will not damage his career too much.
However, this latest report indicates that Garde has not yet decided on his future, and will consider his next steps in the summer.
If he is to stay at Villa Park, the main demand that the Frenchman wants is to have more control over the transfer market, having been left frustrated by the board at the end of the January window.
No one was signed in the January window to make Garde’s job easier, and he wants to know that he will be in complete control to bring in the players he wants.
Garde is a top class manager, and Villa should be doing all they can to keep ahold of the French boss heading into next season.
