Ashley Young's contract at Watford was extended to June 2010 in January 2006.

He joined Aston Villa in January 2007 with a contract to June 2011 which was extended to June 2012 in November 2008.

Ashley joined Manchester United in June 2011 with a five-year contract.

His Red Devils contract was extended to June 2019 in February 2018.

An impressive first season at Old Trafford saw him just miss out on his first Premier League winners medal.

A talented winger who can also play behind the main striker and more latterly at left-back, he is a considerable threat with his delivery at set-pieces.

Regrettably, Ashley also aquired the unfortunate reputation of being able to 'win' penalties.
