"It feels amazing to be back, it feels like I've not left," he told the club's official website. "I've still got that winning mentality, that winners' attitude, that desire and hunger to go and win.

"When I see the squad here, the staff and the players, to have the opportunity to join this club again is fantastic for me and I just want to get down to work and bring my qualities, my experience to a young squad."

Young is Villa's second signing of the summer, with Emiliano Buendia already joining the club from Norwich City.
