Aston Villa have been linked with a move for Ashley Young in recent days and will hold talks with his representatives over the coming days.
And a number of Villa supporters have been reacting to a claim from Gregg Evans on why Dean Smith is looking to bring Young back to the Midlands.
Do you want to see Young back at Villa Park?
Yes, no brainer!
Not now, past it!
Evans, The Athletic’s Villa correspondent, shared a story on Young on Tuesday evening. He claimed that Smith views Young as an ideal option to play on both flanks and could be brought in to provide cover to full-backs Matt Targett and Matty Cash.
Young actually played the majority of games last season as a winger, with just one of his 31 appearances coming as a full-back.
However, it seems as if Smith wants to use Young at the back, should a deal materialise.
Villa fans react
@villareport shared Evans’ claims on where Smith sees Young fitting in back at Villa Park. This is what these fans had to say in reply,
“I’d acc love this”
“perfect signing bring our boy home”
“Oh my it’s actually going to happen”
“Really. Hardly fits the mould of up and coming potential and sell on value. I thought we’d moved on from these type of players”
