Foster urges Young to stay

16 Jan 2007 - 09:45:59

Watford's on-loan goalkeeper Ben Foster has pleaded with in-demand Hornets winger Ashley Young to stay at the club and aid their bid to escape relegation from the Premiership.

The 21-year-old is wanted by a host of other top-flight clubs, with Aston Villa, Spurs, West Ham and Arsenal known to be keen on the England Under-21 international.

However, Foster wants Young to remain a Hornet and move on in the summer.

He said: "Ashley is a really important player for us and a huge talent.

"I am sure he can go on to bigger and better things in the future. But, while he is here, we really do need him.

"He is a vital part of our team. A lot of the play goes through Ashley and he would be a massive loss for us if he were to leave."

Young progressed through the youth ranks at Vicarage Road and has scored four goals this season for Aidy Boothroyd's side.
