Aston Villa fullback Young: I owe a lot to Tottenham

Aston Villa fullback Luke Young is ready for their top four showdown with former club Tottenham.

The full-back returns to White Hart Lane at the weekend to face the club with whom he started his playing career.

He told Villa's website: "I was at Tottenham from the age of 10 and I left when I was 22, so I learned my trade there.

"I owe the club a lot for giving me the time to progress and then allowing me to move on. I still look out for their results and I went to the League Cup final against Chelsea in 2008.

"A lot of people from where I was brought up are Tottenham supporters.

"Some of my dad's mates follow them all over the country, so I hope we can disappoint them."
