In-demand Aston Villa winger Ashley Young admits he wants "to win titles and cups" as speculation increases over his future.

Young is strongly tipped to quit Villa this summer, with Liverpool and Manchester United linked with a move for the England international.

Young, who has one year left of his current contract, has constantly stressed talks on his future will not take place until the end of the campaign, telling the Birmingham Mail: "I'm an ambitious person who wants to win titles and leagues and cups and stuff."

He added: "Hopefully, fingers crossed, I can do that. I think they say players start to peak at 26 or 27.

"I'll soon be 26, so fingers crossed I can start peaking myself. I've been enjoying how things have been going for me."


Villa would be looking for around £15million should Young leave but a bidding war could increase the price.

Young is determined to finish the season on a high note with Villa visiting Arsenal on Sunday.

He said: "I want to be able to do well for myself, do well for the club and get them higher than we are at the moment.

"Fingers crossed, I can continue not to be injured, keep going, keep doing what I've been doing, and see it right through to the end of the season."
