Whisper It... Ashley Young Outward Rumour :(
Things can't get any worse for Villa can they?
James Nursey at The Mirror believes that Spurs are set to move for Ashley Young now they are in the Champions League.
Even worse... adding to rumbles doing the rounds recently... it is thought that the player wants a return to London and might actually ask to leave.
The report says the player is rated at around £25million and an official approach is expected.
Remember not that long back Harry Redknapp said the rumour was a non started as the player wasn't for sale? Said he was the sort of player he would like but he isn't for sale so that is that?
The only problem is if the player asks to leave, we all know that players have the power these days, just look at the Barry and Milner situations. Ouch, the last month has been a painful one, lets hope this isn't on.
Redknapp on Sky Sports today:
'There is nothing close to being done, not that I know of. We are nowhere near doing a deal for anybody. I'm not that bothered to be honest. We had a couple of targets at the start, and we got one of them, but we have a good squad and we will crack on. If we don't find somebody that we feel will make a difference, we will go with what we've got.'
Time will tell.
