"It feels amazing to be back, it feels like I've not left,"

Young told VillaTV


"You can see how much the club has evolved since my time and I'm just ready to get down to work now.

"When I heard of the interest from Aston Villa, it was straight to my agent 'get a deal done, whatever you can, get a deal done.'

"Watching from afar, seeing the squad, how well they did last season, how well they've been doing.

"The staff, the manager, how the players want to play for him; they've got that hunger, he's got that desire, that winning mentality.

"And, for me, I know I've got that winning mentality."

The former England international, who will be 36 years old next month, has agreed on a one-year deal with an option of a one-year extension to return to Villa Park after a decade. He has been experiencing good spells at both teams he played for after leaving Aston Villa as he won the Premier League, FA Cup, and League Cup with Manchester United before joining Inter in 2020 and winning the Serie A title, which makes Aston Villa boss so happy to have him on board.
