Young joined Carlisle United in the summer of last year, but came back to Villa in January as he was not guaranteed game-time in the new year, making 20 appearances before his recall.


This summer, the youngster joined Scottish Championship side Ayr United and has begun the season well for them, scoring two goals and providing an assist in three appearances.



Young explained that feeling good off-the-field is key to his success so far at Ayr United, which is something he cannot say about his time at Carlisle.


Speaking to The Athletic, Young said: “When you’re enjoying your life off the field, it’s easier to play.



“I’m really happy, but I wasn’t at Carlisle.


“I’m loving the challenge here and it’s all about getting goals and assists now.”



Young also stressed that his job in the current loan spell is to keep Aston Villa’s attention, which he will strive to do by performing at a similar level to what he is doing now.


“My job is to keep doing what I am doing and make sure my performances keep me in Villa’s thoughts”, Young added.


Young has one senior appearance for Aston Villa, in the FA Cup during the 2020/21 season, and he will be hoping that unlike with Carlisle, his current loan spell gets him closer to the first team picture at Villa Park.
