Young's England bow a boon for Watford

November 19, 2007

Watford have received a six-figure bonus after former winger Ashley Young made his England debut in Austria.

The 22-year-old moved to Premier League side Aston Villa in January and his sparkling form at Villa Park this season has pushed him into Steve McClaren's squad.

And a clause in the move means Villa must pay the Hornets a further £100,000 after his substitute appearance in the 1-0 win over Austria on Friday.

Watford received an initial £100,000 when Young was called up to his first England squad and will be due more cash when he appears in a competitive international.
