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.'
