Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are in good spirits after seeing a turn around from a previously poor performing player after the Daily Mail revealed that Louis van Gaal is set to reward Ashley Young with a new contract following his impressive season.
The deal in question is set to be a three-year contract and it will be offered to the Englishman at the end of the season.
The winger has also been deployed as fullback throughout this season and has been a reliable figure in the United line up.
As our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern quips – who would have thought at the beginning of the season that Young would be out performing Angel Di Maria, forcing the Argentine to watch on from the bench.
The 29-year-old will hope that he will be rewarded with more than just a new deal as he hopes Roy Hodgson has also noticed his consistency and will give him a recall to the England squad.
