'Committed' star talks United speculation

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa star Ashley Young has committed to the club as they stave off relegation this season, despite growing interest from title leaders Manchester United.

"I'll speak to the manager and chairman at the end of the season,” the 25 year old said.

“I’m fully committed to the club and just concentrating 100% on my football.

“We’ll speak at the end of the season.”

Young has taken a leading role at Aston Villa over the season, with speculation growing that the Englishman is set to make a move to Manchester United this summer.


While other big English clubs are chasing Young, Manchester United are currently the front runners for the star's signature, with Sir Alex Ferguson saying that signings of big players this summer will happen this summer.

Looking past the Manchester United speculation, and forward to the Stoke game this weekend, Young said that Gabby Agbonlahor will be hoping to break his goal drought for Villa.

“Gabby is a great player. He’s been hampered by injury this season,” Young said.

“He would be disappointed himself to have been on the bench for the last few games, but he came on and proved he’s back from his injuries."

Agbonlahor scored the winner against West Ham on Saturday, and Young believes he'll be aiming to emulate that success again this weekend.

“It was a great feeling for him. He scores a few headers and is sharp in the box. Hopefully he can do it against Stoke as well.”
