Aston Villa right-back Luke Young is set for a surprise move to Anfield after Aston Villa accepted a £2.5m bid from Roy Hodgson – who has previously tried to sign Young for Fulham.

Young’s arrival is unlikely to excite the Kop, but his versatility and nationality would boost the squad in two key areas. Hodgson needs to ensure that he has sufficient homegrown talent in his squad and is also short in both full-back departments.

Fabio Aurelio has been released following an injury-plagued spell at the club, Emiliano Insua is set to join Italian side Fiorentina and Philipp Degen has been told he is free to find another club.

Martin O’Neill has been looking to offload the defender for a while as he is one of the highest paid squad members at Villa Park. Young still has three years remaining on his contract and is also attracting interest from Sunderland.

“A fee has been agreed with Liverpool. We’re now in discussions about Luke’s contract.” said Andy Evans, the player’s agent.
