Aston Villa reportedly planning talks with player Grealish deemed 'unbelievable' and 'underrated'

Aston Villa are reportedly planning talks with Ashley Young over a potential return to Villa Park.

Multiple outlets claim the Premier League side is the latest to express an interest in the 35-year-old.

Young is set to depart Inter Milan this summer after turning down a new deal at the San Siro.

The Athletic claims Young would like a Premier League return, with Watford and Burnley also in the frame.

Dean Smith apparently sees Young as potential cover for Matt Target and Matty Cash.

The Villans reportedly want a player who can play on both sides if needed.

They are also considering keeping Frederic Guilbert as back-up next season following his loan at Strasbourg.

Young, played for Villa between 2007 and 2011, clocking up 190 appearances.

He then left Villa and joined Manchester United for £17m, making over 250 appearances for the Red Devils.

Young subsequently left Old Trafford in 2020 and joined Inter, where he won the Serie A title last season.

Aston Villa would be landing an “unbelievable” player

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish waxed lyrical about Young last year on Twitter.

The 2007-08 campaign saw Villa finish sixth in the Premier League, with Young scoring eight goals and assisting 16.

Grealish said Young – who was just 22 at the time – was “unbelievable” that season.
