Bent pushes Young to stay at Villa

Darren Bent will be giving Ashley Young constant earache during their forthcoming spell with England in trying to persuade him to remain with Aston Villa. Young has only one year remaining of his current contract at Villa and is being linked with a move to either Manchester United or Liverpool. Bent hopes Young can stay for at least one more season at Villa as the duo prepare to meet up next week for England's European Championship qualifier against Switzerland at Wembley on June 4. He said: "Every day I'm in Ashley's ear going 'please just give us one more year, one more year, one more year!' "I'm sure when we're away with England, I'll be giving it the same. Ashley has been fantastic for Aston Villa. There's not one person who could say that he hasn't served his time here in the last four or five years. "He's won club award after club award. I think he's been fantastic and if we could get another year out of him - or two years - then it would be brilliant."
