Aston Villa: Fabrizio Romano drops Ashley Young talks

Aston Villa: Fabrizio Romano drops Ashley Young talks -Aston Villa News

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Aston Villa are in ‘talks’ with Ashley Young over a new deal.

The Lowdown: Young released

Young returned to Villa Park last summer on a free transfer and made 25 appearances in all competitions under both Dean Smith and Steven Gerrard.

The 36-year-old turned out in seven different positions, registering his two assists in Gerrard’s first two games in charge.

Young only penned a one-year deal and was named as one of eight players set to be released by the club in the coming weeks, but it looks as if he may now pen a new contract in the Midlands.

The Latest: Romano’s update

Romano took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to provide an update regarding Villa and Young.

He revealed that ‘talks’ are in progress and that there is a ‘very good chance’ Young will be a Villa player next season.

Should Villa keep Young?

The Verdict: Wise move?

The majority of Young’s appearances last season came as a left-back, which is now an area where Villa are short following Matt Targett’s permanent move to Newcastle.

Aston Villa fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

With Young set to be released as it stands, Lucas Digne will be the only senior left-back available to Gerrard, so having the former England international on the books for a further 12 months could be a wise decision.

It looks as if all parties are open to the idea, and with Young capable of providing cover in a number of different areas, a move appears to be a smart call.
