O'Neill - Young 'Pretty Keen'

O'Neill - Young 'Pretty Keen'

Martin O'Neill has updated the situation on transfer target Ashley Young after speaking with the player briefly.

Villa agreed a fee for the England Under-21 international last night and Martin O'Neill believes the player is 'pretty keen' about the move to Villa Park.

The Villa boss said: 'He's a player I've seen quite a lot of and obviously I admire his ability. So I would like the opportunity of working with him here at Villa. But as we see from other clubs, these things can take a bit of time and it's not really my style to be rushing things.'

'We've agreed a fee with Watford, so that we're able to speak to the player and his agent. I have done briefly and I think he's pretty keen. I think he's got some things to sort out at the other end and we'll keep our fingers crossed that he might want to come.'

If he goes to Spurs I dont see it as any great loss.

does he want to leave london ? - if he doesn't no point forcing him. I wonder whats happened to the wall of silence and not making statements until the deal is done ? - Pressure from above ?

the Caught Offside website says "We all know Young wants to join Spurs, but if martin Jol doesn't come in by feb 1st he will probably join Villa" Well, that's nice to know then!

It seems the statement is to say, he may not be done and dusted today.West ham did'nt get this far.The lad has been at Watford since he was 10, so any move will be a wrench and he may need some time to get his head around it.When he see's the new training ground the ambition at the club and the fact we are a sleeping giant the odds are good.Most of our lads have come through the system like him so there is common understanding.Two good feet for crossing , bags of pace and only 21.There will be some years in that one!
