Aston Villa are reportedly resigned to losing Ashley Young to either Liverpool or Manchester United this summer.

According to Metro, Villa are ready to pave the way for Young to seal a dream move at the end of the season after acknowledging that he won't sign a new contract.

The England winger has just one year remaining on his current deal, so Villa are preparing to cash in on the 25-year-old, rather than let him leave on a free transfer next June.

It was reported by The Guardian last week that Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group are 'increasingly confident' of sealing a deal for the £15 million-rated midfielder, and Anfield now appears to be his most likely destination.


Liverpool have been linked with the former Watford man for several months, and Damien Comolli is understood to have been monitoring his progress with great interest.

The Liverpool director of football has previously stated that the Reds may move for Young, should he become available, and it now seems as though the Anfield club will get their wish at the end of the season.
