The official website have announced that the club have agreed a fee with Watford star Ashley Young in a reported £9.65million deal.

Young, who has been chased recently by West Ham (rejected once) and Spurs (rejected by Watford) will now talk to Martin O`Neill about a move to the Midlands.

Finally some transfer action, woohoo!

  • 8mil deal which could rise by 1.65mil depending on his success. i saw it and came back here to see if you had anything on it but there was nothing then i saw another article on it came back here. whats with the youngsters though, whats so good about him. And he looks like nick cannon

  • Just think of our pacy front line in the 4-3-3 formation young,gabby and moore. This is good news we have waited long enough.

  • great news to go to bed to but sites are not getting all the facts together some say £10m some say £8m and others say something else

  • probably a good place and good manager to improve his trade and skills, would of liked to see him come to arsenal, but a better move than west ham or spuds.

  • Lets hope some of those who doubted Martin and Randy’s commitment and intent will shut up now. I have found some of the recent negativity astonishing and it has made me realise how ignorant some people are.

    Lets hope he signs now!!!

  • Wouldn’t be too surprised to see Martin Jol back in with a late renewed bid. Come on Martin and Randy. Your task now is to sell the club and its vision to the lad. Still in the early stages, a lot of talking, selling, and convincing to be done. Fingers crossed though. A completed deal would get the message out that AVFC are back in business.

  • I doubt Tottenham will pay that much, he is completely overpriced, but is what we have to do at the moment because we are desperate for new blood and he seems to be the only decent player available. Good business for watford though, and their car salesman manager.

  • Lads, lets be honest here…..how much have we really seen of Young? If we paid that much, he’d be our record signing and i dont believe he’s worth that much. If he came to Villa and embellished our supply line; got into the England team, scared the daylights out of all and sundry etc i’d be happy. But geeesh..almost 10 MILLION ?
    I think we’re being held to ransom here. I’m happy if we sign players but not just for the sake of it. He could be our only signing…..
    I will however give MoN the benefit if he feels Young is for the future.

  • Wahoo, if MON thinks hes worth it then great stuff sign him up. I dont think hes overpriced, i think its the going rate these days, £18m for Carrick proves the point.

  • shows our ambition but i feel it’s too much to pay. at this stage of our development i feel we should be in the market for good players round the 5-6 million mark. a club like ours should only be spending really big money like 10million if that player would be the ‘icing on the cake’ to add to an already good team.

  • Lets just hope he isnt named in Watford team tomorrow – that would be a real sign he is on his way by Monday. Unless they get it done and dusted today. He would be a class buy and no-one better will move this month in my opinion!!
