Liverpool target alerts Dalglish: ‘will discuss move in a week’

Aston Villa star Ashley Young says he will talk to Villa boss Gerard Houllier after the season comes to an end about his future, as Liverpool circle the midfielder.

"I have always said that on the pitch I will give 100 per cent, which I have done, and when it comes to the end of the season I will sit down with the manager and the chairman, and we'll take it from there," Young told Sky Sports News.

"I know there is a lot of speculation in the football world and that is how it's been for the last few weeks.

"But I have to concentrate on everything that's going on at Aston Villa and keep doing well for the club.


"We have got one massive game coming up on Sunday and we'll look to get three points."

Liverpool have been connected to the star on many occasions, with Kenny Dalglish taking a liking to both Young and Villa teammate Stuart Downing. Though Villa is reluctant to sell the star, Dalgish has reportedly been given a £50 million summer transfer budget, and is looking to offer Villa a sum they can’t refuse.

Young has made clear his intentions to play in the Champions League, and while Liverpool can’t offer that for now, they can offer a plan over the next couple of years in which they not only hope to be playing Champions League football, but also hope to be challenging for trophies.

The singings of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in January have taken Liverpool a little closer toward their goal, as well as Kenny Dalglish making his managerial position permanent. This will no doubt tempt Young to make a move toward the history rich club.
