Dean Windass has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that he’d put money on Watford signing Ashley Young this summer.
The 35-year-old, who added another trophy to his collection by winning Serie A title Inter Milan last weekend, is out of contract at the San Siro at the end of the season, and will be available on a free.
And transfer expert Fabrizio Romano confirmed that the Hornets have already opened talks about the possibility of bringing Young back to Vicarage Road.
Should Watford sign Ashley Young this summer?
Romano believes that should Inter decide against offering Young fresh terms, there is a “huge chance” that the former England international will return to Watford next season.
Young came through the Academy at Watford having joined as an eight-year-old and ended up spending four years there before joining Aston Villa.
His impressive form at Villa Park led to a dream move to Manchester United, where he ended up winning the FA Cup, Europa League and Premier League.
But Windass believes that it’s the right time for Young to return his old stomping ground.
He told The Transfer Tavern:
“He’s had a wonderful career. I’ll put a bet on at the bookies that he’ll end up at Watford. He’s still a relatively young man, probably wants to get back to London, where he started.
“That would be a great signing for Watford and a great signing for Ash. If the manager sees an interest in Ashley Young, I think he’d jump at the chance, especially now they’re back in the Premier League.”
