Yalla Shoot :Ashley Young due for Everton medical after leaving Aston Villa as free agent | Everton

Ashley Young is due for a medical at Everton on Tuesday with a view to joining as a free agent after leaving Aston Villa. The 38-year-old is in line to become Sean Dyche’s first signing since the manager took over last January.

Young started 23 games for Villa last season but has been released after two years. He has played 17 consecutive seasons of top-flight football since winning promotion from the Championship with Watford in 2006, his time in the Premier League broken by a spell with Internazionale.

With 422 Premier League appearances Young, who made his name as a winger but is able to operate in a number of positions including full-back, would bring enormous experience and versatility to Everton. Although last season he was used mostly at right-back and also at left-back, in the previous campaign he was also deployed across four midfield positions and as a left winger.
