Manchester United winger Ashley Young has reiterated his desire to remain with the Red Devils as he enters the final year of his contract with the club.

The 30-year-old former Aston Villa star has admitted that his future is in the hands of the club as they are yet to offer him a new deal, despite the winger reigniting his career under Louis van Gaal during the 2014/15 campaign.

Young was expected to be sidelined following the British-record transfer of Angel Di Maria last summer, but it was the former, who grabbed every opportunity to impress the manager, which eventually led to the Englishman being the preferred choice over his Argentine counterpart.

But, the arrival of Memphis Depay and according to Spanish publication AS, the possible signing of Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona could potentially see Young become surplus to requirements.

The United winger revealed preliminary talks have been held with the club, but is unsure of how long it will take for a deal to be concluded.

"I'm at one of the biggest clubs in the world so I want to stay here as long as possible. That's exactly what I want to do. I think a lot of people thought I had it done [a new deal] but I haven't. It's in the club's hands now so I will have to see how it goes," Young said, as quoted by the Guardian.

"Of course. I want to go out and play and at the moment I am on tour so I am trying to enjoy myself. I hope we can sort things out. There have been preliminary talks so I am just looking to go out on the pitch and leave my agent to take care of that."

"You will have to ask the club that," the former Aston Villa winger added, when asked about the time-frame for the deal to be concluded.
