Villa Bid Re-Buffed?

Bid rejected?

Well, according to the Daily Mail, Watford have turned down 5million bids from both Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur for 21-year-old attacking midfielder Ashley Young.

The Hornets boss Aidy Boothroyd says that another club also bid, naming no names but thought to be Liverpool.

'I have had three Premiership clubs on the phone making verbal bids for Ashley Young, but I have turned them all down. As it stands today, I absolutely do not see him leaving the club this month. But tomorrow, Ashley might come up to me and say: 'I've had enough'. But he is not daft, and he knows this is the best place for him to be.'

Young has played every minute of every game so far this season, scoring 4 goals in the process.

Cant say I know much about him but looking at his career stats he seems to have a pretty good goal ratio (approx 1 in 3), granted most of those were in the lower divisions but even so thats a cracking ration for a young midfielder.

Be good to see us do what Spurs have been doing and bring in the best of the young talent about.

We were linked to him a few months ago quite strongly. Blackburn have had bids for lucas neill as well, wouldnt surprise me if we bid for him either

Type of player we are looking to add to our squad is proving himself in a weak team and like Fear said we could do worse than follow spurs and buy up talent just 5 mill is a large chunk and that was rejected so if we desperatly want him then wot will it rise to?

What's the big deal about Ashley Young? I've seen him play and he strikes me as a bustling type of player with very little flair or vision. The one thing I can say for him is that he does seem to have a quick brain. Now his little club won't let this average player go for 5 mil, blow me. I must be wrong though because, if the reports are to be believed, some of the top clubs are willing to pay more than monopoly money for him. If he's worth 7 mil, what price Aaron Lennon? 50 mil? Spurs should be looking for better than this.

not bothered about whatever his name is. I've changed my mind from my earlier post on another forum in that I wouldn't pay more than 1m for him... Villa you are welcome to him..

5million is a lot of money, but if thats the going rate for quality youngsters, which it obviously is, then you have to pay it.
