Reports in the Daily Mail today have disclosed that Manchester united winger Ashley Young is pushing for a loan move away from old Trafford before the end of the January transfer window in order to get regular playing time after registering just five premier league appearances under Jose Mourinho this season.
Reports in the Sun suggests the former Aston Villa man has been linked with a move to premier league strugglers Swansea and West Ham united. Watford where Ashley Young established himself in football and also helping them to promotion to the 2006 premier league season are also monitoring the situation of the Manchester united man.
Ashley Young last start for Jose Mourinho’s men back in November and has since suffered limited playing time and in recent seasons, the Englishman has deputized at the full back role with the likes of Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all above him in the pecking order and this has prompted him to push for a move away from Old Trafford.
Ashley Young switched to Manchester united from Aston Villa in 2011and lifted the premier league in 2013 as well as last season’s FA cup trophy and he has also enjoyed 30 England call ups and scored 7 goals.
Reports in the Guardian last week hinted that Ashely Young could move to China while the Birmingham Mail also suggested that West Bromich Albion were also interested in signing the attacker and the player’s recent request to get some playing time on loan this January shows that he still sees a future at Manchester united but needs regular playing time to reignite his Manchester united career.
