Transfer Rumours

Premier League trio target United misfit

Ashley-Young-in-action-for-Manchester-United-516361Ashley Young is a target for Aston Villa, Sunderland and Southampton, according to the Daily Express. Young has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford for some time and the report suggests the three Premier League clubs are all interested in the services of the 29-year-old.

Young, who played the first three games of the season but has since failed to make an appearance, is under contract with United until 2016 but the club looks unlikely to offer Young an extension, given he’s consistently failed to deliver since arriving at Old Trafford in the summer of 2011.

The 29-year-old’s lacklustre performances mean United will be able to recoup only a fraction of the £15m they paid for Young three years ago, but Louis Van Gaal would probably accept a smaller fee if that meant getting rid of the former Villa man without losing him for free in the summer of 2016.

The clearout looks set to continue.
