Ashley Young Transfer Talk

Ashley Young Transfer Talk

According to The Sun, Watford will allow 21-year-old Ashley Young leave but only if the £9.65million bid that West Ham put in is matched.

Seems Young doesn't want a move to West Ham and according to this report has snubbed the Hammers but chairman Graham Simpson says the England under-21 attacking midfielder will be allowed to depart for a similar sum.

Reports suggest that Young would like a move to Spurs but has also been linked to Aston Villa with Martin O'Neill in desperate need of re-inforcements following a spell of 12 games with no wins.

According to the Times Spurs aren't as hot on the transfer and with other reports suggesting both Wayne Routledge and Calum Davenport, players Martin Jol would have been prepared to use as makeweights in a deal, aren't willing to move to Watford.

That could leave Aston Villa in the driving seat and again according to the Times, met with the player last week.

This goes to show how vastly overpriced English players are. I would agree with O'Neill that clubs are holding certain over clubs to ransom.

With all the focus on Young I would not surprise me if we did not sign him for the stupid amount of 9.65 million but a player from far far away came in instead, Watford are taking the urine asking for so much money. I know its a sellers market but .........

It's a ridiculous fee. He's done no better, no worse than our very own Gabby in my opinion. Would we get £10million for Gabby? I very much doubt it. We'd probably get £5 million max and I believe that to be Youngs true value too.

9m - i would rather pay 5.5 for Barton and give him a 3.5m contract. Or maybe Ledley King, robbie keane, bent, govou, carew, SWP the list goes on!

no offence to the lad though its not his fault West Ham are throwing their money around like idiots (theres always one). He would be very welcome if we did sign him.

Id be happy if we signed him (or anyone old joe for that matter) but we could get at least 2 experienced players for that price. Weve got enough youngsters. But watford are fools, yeah hes good but theyre only letting him go for a way too inflated price, only to shut down a good offer. Just like Bale at Southampton. Two ***** teams, who could sell them for a reasonable price and buy mostly a whole different team. But this young bloke ive never even noticed, but then i dont really bother watching watford games when theyre on, too um... whats the word...*****, yeah thats it...*****
