Hornets Reject Mariappa Bid
Sky Sports News this lunchtime reported that Watford have rejected a £2million bid from newly-promoted Reading for defender Adrian Mariappa.
Mariappa, who came through Watford's academy, was subject to offers from both Wigan and Newcastle in the January transfer window. Since the end of the season there had already been speculation that Reading had made an enquiry for the Hornets stalwart.
Mariappa's performances had caught the eye throughout the season and was voted 'supporters' and 'players' player of the season at Watford's end of season awards dinner last month.
