Ashley Young 'remains committed to Aston Villa'

19th April 2011 - Berko Tau

Aston Villa forward Ashley Young insists he remains committed to playing for football manager Gerard Houllier.

With just six games to go until the end of the season, speculation continues to mount about whether clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool are preparing summer bids for the England international.

Young will have just a year left to run on his contract in June, and has refused to discuss a new deal until then.

However, the player is keen to point out that this does not necessarily mean his time at Villa is coming to an end.

He explained: "I'm fully committed to the club and you can see that by the performance I put in against West Ham on Saturday.

"I'm just concentrating 100 per cent on my football and we will speak at the end of the season."

Ashley Young signed for Aston Villa from Watford for a fee of £9.75 million in January 2007, and has remained a key player ever since.
