Club Career

Club(s) Despite being initially turned down by Watford FC's youth academy, Young was eventually accepted on merit. He went onto make 98 league appearances, scoring nineteen goals, helping Watford gain promotion to the Premier League. In the first transfer window of 2007, West Ham United FC attempted to buy him for £10 million, but Young rejected this transfer, and soon Aston Villa FC paid £8 million for him, whom he signed for on 18 January 2007 for a club record transfer fee paid. After scoring thirty goals in 157 Premier League appearances, on 23 June 2011, Young moved to Manchester United FC for £20 million. Up until 2016-17 season, Young had played 120 Premier League matches and scored eleven goals.
