Watford reject 7m bid for Young

Young is a man in demand
Watford have turned down a 7m bid from an unnamed club for England Under-21 winger Ashley Young.

Manager Aidy Boothroyd revealed earlier this week that three clubs were after the talented 21-year-old.

"He's still a Watford player until he says he wants to go and the bid is acceptable," Boothroyd told BBC Sport.

"I believe that's nowhere near enough money for what he's capable of and I'm lucky I've got a board and chairman that totally believe in me."

Young, who came through Watford's youth ranks, signed a new four-and-a-half year contract with Watford in January 2006.

He was a key player as Watford sealed their Premiership status, scoring 12 goals during the regular season, and one in the play-off semi-finals.

Boothroyd added: "He can score, make goals, play with his left and his right foot and play in four different positions.

"He's athletic, extremely quick, he's a dead ball specialist and he'll do exactly what you tell him to do.

"Those players are at an absolute premium. Outside of the top four clubs, he's possibly the best prospect out there."
