Aston Villa are keen to retain services of Ashley Young and are ready to offer a new deal for him. Young’s future at Villa has been the subject of speculation in the wake of Martin O’Neill’s departure as manager.

The likes of Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton are all thought to be keeping tabs on Ashley Young’s situation and are readying moves for the England international.

However, it is understood Villa owner Randy Lerner is determined to keep hold of Young and will resist any offers that come in for 25-year-old before the transfer window closes.
