Villa star ‘eager to join United’

The 25-year-old was valued at around £25million last season

but his contract is up at Villa Park in summer 2012. The Daily Mail

reports Young and his advisers have been in talks with Villa over

the possibility of signing a new four-year deal worth around

£70,000 a week. However, the newspaper claims the former

Watford starlet has no intention of signing the contract or

discussing terms any further, and has instead set his heart on a

transfer to Old Trafford. Young has won 12 England caps to date and

has contributed six goals and seven assists in 25 Premier League

games for Villa this season.
