Ashley Young has said his Aston Villa future will be sorted out next month.

Manchester United are leading the chase for the England midfielder and he will hold talks with Villa boss Gerard Houllier when the season ends.

The 25-year-old said: 'I'm fully committed to the club and just concentrating 100 per cent on my football.'

Young will have only 12 months left of his contract this summer and is being strongly linked with a move to United while Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City are also believed to be interested.

He added: 'I've always said that I'm going to speak to the manager and the chairman (Randy Lerner) in the summer.

'I'm fully committed to the club and you can see that by the performance I put in against West Ham on Saturday.'

Villa have moved into the top half of the Barclays Premier League after seven points from the last three games have lifted them away from the relegation zone.

But Young said: 'I think it's more people outside the club who have been concentrating on what's happening at the bottom half of the table than us.

'We decided after the disappointing home result against Wolves a few weeks back to start looking up.

'We had a good point at Everton and now have had back to back wins against Newcastle and West Ham.
