Young's future is yellow

Young's future is yellow

Ashley Young today signed an extension to his contract that will keep him at Vicarage Road until 2010.

The all-action attacker, whose future has been the subject of much speculation, is ‘delighted’ to have signed a contract extension with Watford.
“I am delighted to have sorted my future said the Stevenage-born twenty-year-old. “For weeks there has been a lot of speculation about who was interested in me and who was about to make an offer for me during the transfer window,” the twenty-year-old told the club’s official website.

“So I’m delighted to be able to put all those things behind me and agree a new deal. “I’m really looking forward to playing alongside the likes of Marlon (King), Anthony (McNamee) and Jay (DeMerit) during the next few years. “Watford is in my veins - and it always will be. “I really believe we are going to achieve an awful lot over the next few years. “The manager has got us believing in ourselves in a way we could have only dreamed of twelve months ago. “The belief is showing itself more and more as we get further into the season.”

Young’s inspirational performances have caught the eye of the wider footballing public and have seen the attacker selected by Peter Taylor for the Football League Under-21 squad to face its Italian counterparts at Hull City’s KC Stadium in February. However, the Stevenage-born youngster insists that he will keep his feet firmly on the ground. “People have been saying really nice things about me in recent months – and that’s nice. “But it’s important I don’t loose my focus and I continue to deliver where it matters most – on the pitch.”

Young, who is arguably the hottest property outside the Premiership, also praised manager Aidy Boothroyd and stressed the club’s goal of reching the Holy Grail of the Premiership. “I have a good relationship with the players and the manager. “And I know they won’t let me get carried away with any publicity I may receive. “So I’m looking forward to being part of a terrific squad that’s got a great spirit and real ability. “And I am determined that we will achieve our goal of securing a place in the Premier League sooner rather than later.”

Watford supreme Aidy Boothroyd expressed his delight about Young signing a new contract and declared that the best is still to come from attacker.
“Ashley is one of the most gifted footballers I’ve worked with. “I’m delighted that we’ve agreed a deal that keeps him at the club until 2010. “The best is yet to come from him – and if the fans are happy with what they’ve seen so far, they better brace themselves because themselves because there’s still an awful lot to come,” said the young Watford boss who before Christmas committed himself to Hornets until 2010.

With leading goalscorer Marlon King also committing his long-term future to Watford in December, the future looks bright for the Golden Boys.
