Ashley Young is on the verge of joining Inter Milan after Manchester United agreed a €1.5 million fee with the Serie A club.

The deal for the 34-year-old England international is subject to a medical, scheduled to take place in Milan on Friday, and the agreement of personal terms.

The United club captain was out of contract in the summer, but Inter boss Antonio Conte was keen to tie up the deal during this month’s transfer window.

Young has made 18 appearances for United this season, scoring once against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League.

But the versatile defender has not featured since the FA Cup third-round tie at Wolves on January 4th, missing the last three games as his future became increasingly uncertain.

Stevenage-born Young, who has won 39 England caps, began his career at Watford and joined United from Aston Villa for £17 million in June 2011.

He made 261 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 19 goals.

Young won a Premier League winner’s medal in 2012-13, in Alex Ferguson’s final season as United manager.

He also picked up winner’s medals in the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.

Inter, who signed Romelu Lukaku from United last August and also have Alexis Sanchez on loan, are second in Serie A, two points adrift of Juventus.
