Ashley Young has claimed he would "walk from Italy" in order to return to Watford.

On the club's 'Golden Tales' podcast the Inter Milan player said he would love to finish his career with the Hornets, where he first became a professional after progressing through the youth ranks.

"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," he said.

"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."

Young also used the podcast as a chance to "set the record straight" regarding a celebration in front of the Rookery End during his time at Manchester United.

The full-back claimed it was nothing more than a passionate display and that it was nothing personal against the Watford supporters.

"I've not got nothing against any Watford fan. None whatsoever, and I've always wanted to set the record straight," he said.

"When you do score a goal, I'm passionate, I want to celebrate. I remember thinking as soon as I scored, 'Yeah I'm running to that corner, and I'm going to celebrate'.

"It wasn't one of those things that crossed my mind like 'What have you done?', it's just I've scored a goal, I want to celebrate.

"But I have got nothing against any Watford fan, and I know I took abuse that day, and do you know what, if I could go back and change it, would I? No.

"I know what started my career. It was Watford. I always say and I will always say it's my home."
