Ashley Young is set to snub any interest from Tottenham Hotspur and is close to signing a new contract at Manchester United.

The English winger was in impressive form last season as he found his way back into the first-team set up keeping out record signing Angel di Maria.

And according to talkSPORT, the 30-year-old is close to signing a new deal with the Red Devils and put an end to rumours of any potential move to London.

Young is in the final year of his deal at Old Trafford and it was believed Spurs had turned their attentions to the former Aston Villa man having been priced out of a move for Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie.

With Argentine midfielder Di Maria looking set for a move to PSG in the near future, despite United rejecting their latest offer due to the fee involved, Young looks likely to be an important cog in the Red Devils attack in the coming campaign.

Young has endured some ups and downs in his United career since joining from Villa in 2011. He had a stellar first season, scoring eight goals in 33 matches, including a brace in the 8-2 demolition of Arsenal.

He failed to score and was limited to just 23 appearances in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season before another poor campaign under the guidance as David Moyes as United finished seventh led to the wide man missing on a spot in England's World Cup squad. 

Despite scoring only two goals last season, he was able to assist five as his threat on the left-wing played a vital part in United firing themselves back into the Champions League. He also kept Di Maria, who appeared to struggle with life on and off the field in Manchester, on the bench.

His performances did not go unnoticed as Young was in line for his first international call up since 2013, for the friendly against the Republic of Ireland and European qualifier against Slovenia before he was ruled out with injury.

Young, who has made 90 league appearances for United, has again been heavily involved in pre-season. Occupying his usual wide left position and linking up well with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Memphis Depay.

Optimism is high around Old Trafford following the club's summer business and performances in pre-season, and Young will be looking to play a big part in the hope he can add a second Premier League winner's medal to his collection.
