The English football champions Manchester United have continued their acquisition of home-grown talent with the signing of the Aston Villa and England forward Ashley Young on a five year contract.

The 25-year-old Young is a pacy winger who can also play as a second striker, and he joins the England under-21 defender Phil Jones, who moved to United from Blackburn Rovers in another big-money move earlier this month.
