Aston Villa have secured Wigan midfielder Charles N'Zogbia for £9.5m.
The French winger will head to Villa Park after the departure of Young and Stuart Downing.
He joins this season's other big signing Shay Given at the Birmingham club.
N’Zogbia could have left Wigan for nothing next summer when his current contract runs out.
But the transfer now will depend on club owner Dave Whelan giving his seal of approval.
N’Zogbia will hold talks over personal terms in the next 24 hours.
And he will undergo a medical before signing what is expected to be a five-year deal.
McLeish’s team are currently on a pre-season tour of Hong Hong but N’Zogbia does not have the required work visa.
