'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ashley Young - Contract Negotiations On Hold?


James Nursey at The Mirror says that Ashley Young wants a buy out clause in his new contract. The 25-year-old England winger is keen to sign and has told a close friend of mine how much he loves it at Villa. However apparently he wants a set x escape clause should a big offer come in.

I guess, with the way players and football is these days, that isn't too outlandish and again, if we can double or treble our money on him, it is the way that football works.

Apparently the Club are in 'advanced' negotiations and Ash will be on around 75 000 a week. Bit low isn't it? Bloody slave labour if you ask me, I'd not get out of bed for anything less than 100k a week to be fair.

The worrying thing in this report is it is said the buy-out clause he wants is around 13-14m. That is way too low. 25m fair enough.

Problem is, his current deal runs out in 18 months so he is in the driving seat really.

In a report by Shaun Custis of The Sun it is claimed Ash has 'dramatically' called off the contract talks.

Gulp, they quote him as well!

'I've told the people at Villa that I won't be signing a new contract at the moment. I know they want to get it done now but my current deal still has a year to run after this season and I feel there is plenty of time to talk next summer.'

He does add in SunSport: 'I want to stress that I have no problem with Aston Villa. I love the fans and I'm very much enjoying my football. I want to concentrate on what's happening on the field and don't want to get distracted. It's a big season for me and I'm hopeful there are good times ahead under the new manager.'

Gerard Houllier is also quoted saying that Ash has a good international future and adds, 'His involvement and dedication to what he does at training is really a good sign for the future for him.'
