Manager Martin O'Neill insists the £12million arrival of Stewart Downing at Aston Villa does not spell the end of Ashley Young's time at the club.

With the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and even Real Madrid said to be interested in the former Watford man, speculation has been rife that Young could be on his way from Villa Park.

The signing of Downing only adds more fuel to the fire, but O'Neill insisted on Thursday: "There have been a lot of stories about Ashley - and that's what they are - stories."

He added: "No-one has come in and asked us about Ashley Young and I have got to tell you, if they did they would get short shrift."
