Watford have handed a new two-year deal to academy product Matty Whichelow.

The 19-year-old midfielder, one of numerous youngsters in the Hornets squad, has scored three times in 21 games, 16 of which were off the bench.

Whichelow, who joined the club aged 14, made his debut in a 2-0 defeat by Scunthorpe in October and scored seven days later in a 4-1 reverse at Derby.

"I'm happy to sign to be honest and to get my future sorted out," he told the club website.

"Now I can look forward to the new season and focus on coming back fit and ready to go for pre-season."
