Roy Hodgson has been tipped to make a move for Aston Villa’s Ashley Young after the odds on the player’s next club were slashed this week.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is already a confirmed admirer of Young and could steal a march on Hodgson in the race for the talented winger by offering Villa Jermaine Jenas, Robbie Keane and David Bentley in an exchange deal.

Young is said to be disillusioned at Villa Park and is disappointed by the lack of signings this Summer and has already spoken about his displeasure at potentially seeing James Milner join Manchester City.

Martin O’Neill would loathe to see another of his young stars linked away from Villa Park, but is unlikely to be given the funds to bring in the signings to appease his ambitious players. Having already given Young wages of £65,000 a week, it seems there is little more the Irishman can do to persuade him that the club can match his desire for silverware.

Bookmakers make Liverpool the second favourites to secure the player as Spurs have Champions League football on offer along with a bigger transfer fund available.

Sky Bet odds on Young’s next club:

Spurs 3/1
Liverpool 7/2
Man City 10/1
Man United 16/1
Arsenal 20/1
