Young Set For Villa Move

Last updated : 20 January 2007 By Gary Holmes

Watford Football Club has this morning (Friday) confirmed they have accepted a bid from Aston Villa for Ashley Young.

The expected transfer, for a fee believed to be in the region of £9m, would end a week of intense speculation surrounding the 21-year-old that began with the player turning down a £9.65m move to West Ham United.

Young, who netted 15 times for the Golden Boys last season, is expected at Villa Park on Friday afternoon to discuss personal terms with Aston Villa manager, Martin O'Neill.
