A few eyebrows were raised when Villa paid an initial £8m to Watford for Ashley Young, with the potential for his fee to go even higher, but he is proving to be excellent value for money.

Originally signed as a striker, and subsequently operating as a winger, the 23-year-old revelled in a free role just behind the front two, his pace and invention making him a major threat to opposition defences. There was certainly an air of anticipation among Villa fans whenever he was in possession of the ball.

He missed only one league match, at Fulham, when he was suspended after picking up five bookings, and contributed nine goals, including two in the 5-1 Second City derby victory at Villa Park.

The former England under-21 international's impressive club form earned him a call-up to the senior national squad. He made his full England debut as a second half substitute against Austria in November 2007.
