Ashley Young could be heading back to the Premier League

Ashley Young’s representatives are in discussion with Burnley over a one-year deal with an option for a further 12 months. Burnley’s coach Sean Dyche was Young’s captain when he made the breakthrough at Watford. Ashley had turned down a new contract at Inter-Milan. Both parties are increasingly hopeful a deal can be completed.

Ashley has a deep respect for Burnley’s coach Sean Dyche, who was his leader at Watford when Young started his professional career. The 35-year-old is set to depart Inter-Milan this summer after turning down a new deal at the San Siro and held talks over a possible return to Watford. Young made 34 appearances this season as Inter-Milan won their first Serie A title in 11 years, although manager Antonio Conte left the club just days after the final fixture over the club’s plans to reduce spending.

Ashley Young had joined Inter-Milan in January 2020 from Manchester United, for whom he made 261 appearances and won a Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup. Young is understood to have turned down two offers from Inter Milan already. His former club Watford and Major League soccer outfit inter Miami are among the other clubs to have expressed an interest. Despite 35 years of age, he is still fit and fresh with plenty to offer at the very highest level.
