Promotion-chasing Watford have agreed a new four-and-a-half-year deal with striker Ashley Young.
Young has been courted by Aston Villa and Arsenal
The 20-year-old has scored 11 goals this season and attracted the interest of Arsenal and Aston Villa.
"I really believe we are going to achieve an awful lot over the next few years," said Young.
Manager Adrian Boothroyd added: "Ashley is one of the most gifted footballers I've worked with. The best is yet to come from him."
