Villa's Young hopes Barry ignores Chelsea

Aston Villa winger Ashley Young admits it's crucial they hang onto skipper Gareth Barry.

Reacting to reports linking Chelsea with a bid for Barry, Young said: "He's sheer quality and a player we just can't afford to lose.

"There's nothing flash about him but there's nobody more effective in doing the simple things well.

"You can't get the ball off him and he never wastes a pass - he's been a revelation for England in our last four games."
