Ashley Young is planning to hold talks over his future with Aston Villa chairman Randy Lerner now the season has ended.

Young, whose contract at Villa Park expires next summer, has been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool in recent weeks and had intended to discuss his next move with manager Gerard Houllier only for the Frenchman to stand down on health grounds on Wednesday.

He said: "I'm going away on holiday but I said at the end of the season I would speak to the manager. That is where it stands. Now I'll go back and speak to the chairman and we will take it from there."

Young certainly did his future prospects no harm with a sparkling second-half display for England and he felt he had a point to prove to coach Fabio Capello after being left out of the starting line-up.

He had impressed in the previous Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales in March, setting up both goals in England's 2-0 win.

Young said: "It was nice to get on the scoresheet. I was disappointed not to start but I took it on the chin.

"When you get the chance to come on, you just want to impress and I felt I did that today.

"The manager has named the team and you've just got to get on with it.

"I've got the character and the strength when I get my chance, to grab it with both hands and that's what I did.

"I think I've shown that."
