However, the versatile wide man revealed he would love to retire at Watford if given the chance as he declared he would happily walk away from Inter.

He came through the ranks at Vicarage Road – joining the academy in 1995 before making his first-team debut in 2003.

Young said: “If I could go back and play there [at Watford] again, I would walk from Italy right now because it’s what I know, it’s where I come from and it’s what allowed me to be who I am and get where I am.

“For me, at my age now, and you can ask my family, you can ask my agent, if I had the opportunity to go back and finish my career at Watford, I would jump at the chance.”
