Ashley Young has hinted he will be happy to sign a new contract at Aston Villa.

The 25-year-old has just under two years left of his current Villa deal and was linked with a move to Tottenham during the summer transfer window. But new Villa manager Gerard Houllier has expressed optimism that Young will put pen to paper sooner rather than later on a four-year contract.

And the former Watford winger said: "I have said all along, I am happy with everything that is going on at Villa. I am delighted. The manager has come in and spoken to me. I have two years left on my contract. The main focus for me is to concentrate on my football. Once the club sits down and talks to me, they will talk to me."

He added: "Right now I am delighted with the way things have gone and are going at Villa.

"I'm just concentrating on the football side of things and I am sure everything will get sorted."

Young believes Houllier can bring the best out of him in the same way as his predecessor, Martin O'Neill.

He said: "I always said Martin O'Neill is a great manager. He brought me to the club. He was fantastic to me. But things change in football.

"Now I am working under Gerard Houllier, who looks like another one who is looking to get the best out of me."
