Watford retain interest in Stevenage defender Ben Wilmot

Watford haven't dropped their interest in Stevenage defender Ben Wilmot.

The Daily Mail says Watford have revived their bid to sign Stevenage's teenage centre-back Wilmot.

The 18-year-old was the subject of a £500,000 offer from the Vicarage Road club in January but they cooled their interest after failing to agree on a fee with Stevenage wanting £1million.

Wilmot impressed playing in League Two and for England U19s which also prompted interest from Brighton, Brentford, Tottenham and Arsenal.

Watford want to strengthen through the spine of their squad though see Wilmot as one for the future.
