Defender pondering Liverpool switch

Aston Villa defender Luke Young has emerged as a target for Liverpool - and is weighing up whether to make a cut price £2.5 million move to Anfield.

Villa manager Martin O'Neill has confirmed he has received an offer for former England right-back Luke Young.

And sources close to the club indicate the interest in the former Charlton and Middlesbrough player is from the Reds.

Young was one of half a dozen players made available for transfer at the end of the season - if the price was right.

He was a key performer during his first campaign at Villa after making a £5 million switch from Middlesbrough during the summer of 2008.

But he suffered early injury problems last season and then was given compassionate leave after the death of his brother.

In his absence Carlos Cuellar cemented his position at right-back and Young has become surplus to requirements.

O'Neill said: "There has been an offer from a football club which Luke is mulling over and, if it doesn't materialise, then he would join us in Portugal (for the Guadiana Cup)."
