Hornets net Young windfall
Manchester United have this afternoon captured former Hornet Ashley Young from Aston Villa landing Watford a significant sell-on fee.
The 25 year-old winger passed a medical at Old Trafford before signing a five-year contract to complete a move believed to be worth between £17m - £20m to the Villains.
Young's departure was always expected with only a year left on his contract at Villa Park. The winger made 193 appearances for the club scoring 30 goals in his three and a half years with Villa.
The Stevenage-born forward left Vicarage Road in January 2007 to join the Midlands outfit in a £9.75m switch and has since earnt 15 England caps scoring twice for his country.
Congratulations Ashley and thanks for netting the 'Orns a tidy profit!
