Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier insists there is no chance of Ashley Young moving to Tottenham Hotspur in January.
The England winger has been regularly linked with a move to White Hart Lane, but the new Villa boss has no intention of letting the former Watford player leave Villa Park.
“Every time a player is available, Tottenham are mentioned,” Houllier told the Daily Star Sunday.
“I’m sure Harry Redknapp must be wondering what’s going on. But I can tell you the reports about Ashley and Spurs are not keeping me awake at night.
“That’s because I can say here and now that Ashley Young will not be going anywhere in January. Absolutely not. They would have to buy this club for that to happen. They would have to come in with a ridiculous amount of money.”
