Can't help but smile seeing him back in Villa gear. Have a good feeling about this one, smart signing that fills a void in more than one way and allows us to put more emphasis and funds on more pressing improvements in the start XI.

Welcome back I say.

Also for squad numbers fans this should mean Targett getting the #3, which is enjoyable.

I'm onboard with this. He's still a decent player, he's a good pro, been there and done it all, offers us experience and versatility. On free, fair enough.

Welcome back Ashley.

I thought he was overall our best player under Oneill. I'll never forget the late late goal at Everton. Im not expecting that player but he can play left back or left wing and gives us good options.

Welcome back. Smart signing. People have mentioned him being a prick. On the pitch yes we need this. Also off the pitch he will be a huge signing for all. 

Maybe Jack's "me winning these free kicks" was referring to Ashley Young. 

He's an eloquent man who will ,I hope, be beneficial to the youngsters. Guys like AEG, Traore and even Buendia will benefit from his knowledge of wing play. This is a bigger signing than a lot of people think.

Aston Villa is pleased to announce the signing of Ashley Young.

The 35-year-old has signed a one-year deal after helping Inter Milan win Serie A last season.

In a stellar career which has seen him make 369 Premier League appearances, win multiple trophies and earn 39 caps for his country, Young returns to Villa Park.

Head Coach Dean Smith said: “Ashley brings with him a wealth of experience of top-level football both at club and international level and he is joining having just won a league championship in Italy.

“He is a player who can play in a number of positions and, having spoken to him at length, I know he is determined to make a real impact with us this season.”

When I heard of the interest from Aston Villa, it was straight to my agent ‘get a deal done, whatever you can, get a deal done’,” he said.
 

 

 

Great interview 

I like this bit....

“Watching from afar, seeing the squad, how well they did last season, how well they’ve been doing.

“The staff, the manager, how the players want to play for him; they’ve got that hunger, he’s got that desire, that winning mentality.

“And, for me, I know I’ve got that winning mentality
