Sunderland to bid for Villa fullback Young

Sunderland are eyeing Aston Villa defender Luke Young.

The Sunday Mirror says Steve Bruce wants to bring Luke Young back to the North East in a ­£3million deal.

Bruce has been told to pay at least £6m by Spurs for Alan Hutton, who spent the last four months of the season on loan at the Stadium of Light.
