Watford reject £7m bid for Young

Surely he's not worth that much? Watford should cash in if so....


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.

606 DEBATE: Your views on Young's future

"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."

Good player. If Micah Ricahrds is worth 18 then hes definitely worth 8, then agian if AJ's worth 8 then he's not even close.

£7m is WAY too much money!!! he's not that good.

If the club was West Ham then they won't sell him.

Which it probably was.

Apparently a bid of £10million from West Ham has been accepted.

Absolutely ludicrous price. And people wonder why Arsene Wenger rarely buys English players.

Watford have been gone for ages now anyway. And I'm not sure Young's presence will guarantee safety for West Ham. They're still haemorrhaging goals, and unless they sort out their defence they will find it difficult to claw their way out. Young is a decent player, he has good technique, is fast and has been Watford's only bright spark this season, but it really is testament to how overinflated prices for English players have become that someone like him can command a few of £10million.

Yet another dozy foreigner with too much cash inflating prices of good (but not exceptional) players. That's crazy money for Young.

If he's £10m we should have got at least £20m for Johnson!

£10m is a real joke

Good post.

Young is decent and is probably a Premiership player, but anything over 4 million is taking Le Tiss.

'Cos he'll probably get an offer from Newcastle, Liverpool and Aston Villa maybe ?

Imagine the drama : "Ashley, there's some good and bad news : a club has come in with a monster bid for you", (Ashley starts high fiving his agent), " the bad news is it's West Ham". Doh !

cant blame him.

I'm glad in a way, there is no way he is worth that kind of money and in our current situation, he's not really the type of player we need either.

We need at least one centre back as an absolute must
