Ashley Young a Hammer Tomorrow?

The DAILY MAIL is reporting that we have had a £10 million bid (yes, you did read that right) form Ashley Young accepted by Watford and that he will sign tomorrow. He has played 23 games for Watford this season, scoring 4 goals. Last season he scored 14 goals in 41 games. My Watford friends tell me he is a superb player and that we’re lucky to get him. But £10 million?!

    I Think 10 Mil is a massive amount of money for a player his age.I think the original 8 mil offer is more reasonable.

    He’s an awesome player who, when fully developed, should play for England. Was rumoured to be on the erge of a call up to the full England squad.
    Check out some youtube videos of him – the free kick in the play-off semi at Palace was pure class.
    10m would be a good investment – but he could be in the same league asWatford next year if he signs for you.
    He’s a Spurs fan and would surely prefer to go there.

    10 mil is a lot…

    But, he is pretty special. Really is. You’ll enjoy watchin him. If he can bulk up slightly, he’ll be great.

    According to Sky, Ash has turned down you Hammers. I’d like to think that’s because he wants to stay a Happy Hornet, but more realistically he doesn’t want to swap one relegation struggle for another.
