Ashley Young Completes Manchester United Medical

Ashley Young is nearing the completion of his move to Manchester United.He has passed his medical at their training facility and is awaiting the finalization of paperwork and personal terms.The deal should be done in the next 24 hours United will not release the transfer value but it is thought to be around £15m.Young's arrival will give Sir Alex Ferguson more variety in attack, with the 25-year-old capable of playing as a two-footed left-winger or operating as a centre-forward.He will be United's second summer signing following the arrival of Phil Jones earlier this month from Blackburn Rovers in a £16.5m move, possibly rising to £20.5m. A deal has also been put in place for the Spain Under-21 international goalkeeper David de Gea to join from Atl├ętico Madrid, taking United's spending to about £50m and marking them out as the major movers in the transfer market so far this summer.

Young, who began his career at Watford before signing for Villa in 2007, had also attracted strong interest from Liverpool but decided, much like Jones, that he would rather move to Old Trafford
