The new Villa left-back said: "Ashley Young is a fantastic player and one I have always liked to watch.
"I am just glad he is on the same side as me now and I will not have to face him.
''I am sure it will be enjoyable playing alongside him."
Warnock believes Young is well deserving of his place in Fabio Capello's England squad and will do as well for his country as he has for Villa.
He added: "We have seen this season what Villa are capable of and what Ashley is capable of.
''Villa can beat anyone on their day - look at that win over Liverpool at Anfield.
"They are a real threat and you only have to look back at last season to see how good a team they are.
''There is such a good crop of English players here and it is great to now be part of it."
