Ashley Young continues to delay contract talks
Aston Villa winger Ashley Young has re-iterated any talks over his future will not take place until the summer.
Young will have only 12 months left of his contract this summer and is being strongly linked with a move to Manchester United.
Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City are also believed to be interested in the 25-year-old.
But Young has been at pains to insist he will make no decision until the end of the campaign and he has maintained his impressive form despite the speculation.
Young said: "I've always said that I'm going to speak to the manager (Gerard Houllier) 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.
"I'm just concentrating 100% on my football and we will speak at the end of the season."
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."
