The Times have reported that Young is keen on staying at Villa beyond the summer of 2022 when his current contract runs out. The former Manchester United star, who can also operate as a full-back, moved to Villa on a free transfer in the summer of 2021 after leaving Inter Milan. Young signed a one-year contract with the Villans, and, according to The Times, he wants to continue playing for Villa.
The 36-year-old, whose first spell at Villa was from 2007 until 2011, loves Villa and the fans and is enjoying playing under manager Steven Gerrard, according to the report. In a specific point of view, it would make sense for Villa to hand Young another short-term deal. Yes, Young is 36 now, but he is hugely experienced, and his presence in the dressing room at Villa Park is surely going to help the younger players.
