Aston Villa: Fans react to Smith’s thoughts on Young

Aston Villa: Fans react to Smith’s thoughts on Young - Aston Villa

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.

The 35-year-old looks set to leave Inter Milan this summer after snubbing a new deal at the San Siro, with Watford and Burnley also keen on the Englishman.

Do you want to see Young back at Villa Park?

Yes, no brainer!

Yes, no brainer!

Not now, past it!

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.
