Caretaker boss Kevin MacDonald insists Aston Villa have received no bid or approach from Tottenham for Ashley Young.

And MacDonald believes it is crucial Villa hold onto their leading players if he decides to apply to take permanent charge in the next 24 to 36 hours.

"We've not had any contact from Tottenham for Ashley Young, nothing at all. We've not had any bid from them at all," said MacDonald.

"Clubs are going to be coming in for some of our top players because one or two of them have been tremendous.

"They have shown some great form at the start of this season. I would like to think the club wouldn't sell them but who knows.

"If it was down to me, I wouldn't sell them."

Young gave another demonstration of his importance to Villa by setting up the winner for namesake Luke Young in Sunday's 1-0 home win over Everton.

Toffees boss David Moyes felt his side deserved at least a share of the spoils from the Villa Park clash.

He said: "We did enough to get something out of the game, if not more than one point.

"We dominated for most of the game but we have also played well in other games and not been able to score."
