Villa in the market for Young replacement

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish has sold Ashley Young to Manchester United for £17m and is now looking for a replacement to partner striker Darren Bent. And McLeish knows he has a job on his hands to replace the England international, not least to keep Bent amongst the goals.

He said: "Bent has been sensational but he needs the right service and we need people to supply that ammunition.

"Young is an international player and had a good relationship with Bent. They looked for each other so we have to find a replacement."
