Former England star Chris Waddle feels Ashley Young's game has moved up a level with his switch to Manchester United.

Waddle believes Young's move from Aston Villa to United has already brought on the 26-year-old's game.

"He has improved and it has been a shame that was stopped in its tracks by his recent injury," Waddle told the Manchester Evening News.

"He's a different winger to Nani and in style is between him and Antonio Valencia. He is a team player like Valencia but also has the flair of Nani.

"His move to Old Trafford has helped him and striking up an understanding with Wayne Rooney has been good for him. Wayne is a dream for a winger.
