Aston Villa confirm that Ashley Young will leave the club this summer

Ashley Young of Aston Villa celebrates qualifying for the UEFA Conference League after the 2-1 victory over Brighton during the Premier League match between Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion at Villa Park on May 28, 2023 in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Ashley Young is to leave Aston Villa at the end of his contract this summer.

The 37-year-old rejoined Villa in 2021 after winning the Serie A title at Inter Milan.

‘Aston Villa can confirm that Ashley Young will be leaving the club upon the expiration of his contract,’ read a club statement.

‘Everyone at Aston Villa would like to sincerely thank Ashley for his service to the club and wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.’

It comes despite Young revealing his hopes that he would sign a new contract extension at Villa Park – following their 2-1 victory over Brighton which sealed them a place in next season’s Europa Conference League.

Despite Young’s hopes, it’s clear that Villa boss Unai Emery had no plans for the player next season.

Young made over 100 appearances for Watford before joining Villa in 2007.

He signed for Manchester United in 2011 and won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League during nine years at Old Trafford.

Young moved to Inter in 2020 and became the third Englishman to win Italy’s top prize after Jimmy Greaves and Gerry Hitchens in 1963.

The 39-times England international, who can play as a left-back or left wing, made 32 appearances last season and 250 for Villa across his two spells with the club.
