Ashley Young has an interview in The Sun today saying once again he is happy at Villa and isn`t angling for a move after putting contract talks on hold.
I say ... once again ... because we had something early September: Press Are Wrong - Ashley Young Will NOT Be Off where Ash told a good friend of mine: "I love it at Villa, I am going nowhere, I really want the fans to know that'
Also, remember Harry Redknapp has also rubbished reports that he is after Ash: Redknapp NOT After Ashley Young
Anyway, Ash said in the Sun report:
'There's nothing about me departing. All I'm doing is concentrating on my football. I don't want to be distracted by anything else. I've not said I'm leaving and I'm not taking my focus off football. They don't need to worry about anything with me.'
He also praises the fans who he says have been 'brilliant` with him and are always singing his name. "Fingers crossed, come Sunday, I can go out there and repay them big-time in the derby."#
Amen to that!
'I'm concentrating 100 per cent on Villa, I'm not thinking about moving.'
He also says that he likes the new free role he is sometimes given and that he aims to keep impressing Gerard Houllier.
He added: 'The gaffer's been fantastic.The club can keep progressing and pushing for that Champions League spot.'
