Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill says reports linking Luke Young with a move to Hull City are news to him.
The former Middlesbrough defender has been linked with a move to Phil Brown's side, although O'Neill questions whether anything will happen.
Young, who did not play in Villa's 2-0 season-opening defeat to Wigan, is currently dealing with the death of his half brother.
O'Neill does not believe moving clubs is top of Young's current list of priorities and he has not heard anything from The Tigers anyway.
"It's news to me. Personally, he has a lot of things to consider at this minute," said O'Neill.
"I would have thought a move would be the last thing on his mind."
