Aston Villa Manager Alex McLeish was resigned to losing Young this week.

"In my humble opinion it will be very difficult [to keep hold of him]."

The online betting exchange Betfair listed Young as a 1/100 favorite not to still be playing for Aston by summer’s end.

Skybet.com, meanwhile, listed Young as a 16/1 long shot to be named PFA Player of the Year.  They also offered up Young with 8/1 odds of being Man United’s top scorer.

Manchester United is the current favorite to win the 2011 – 2012 Premier League at 7/4 odds (William Hill). 

During the 2010-11 season, Young was made vice-captain of Aston Villa and played in a new free role behind the striker.  He scored his first goal of the 2010-11 season with a direct free-kick against Bolton on 18 September 2010. He ended the season with nine goals and fourteen assists in 39 appearances for Villa in all competitions.
