Boost for Arsenal in pursuit of Ben Wilmot as Watford pull out of race
The 18-year old Stevenage central defender has already clocked up 15 appearances for the senior team.
Watford placed a 500k bid for a youngster in winter, but Stevenage declined it.
The Hornets source said: "The club have moved on in its list of targets and priorities. A bid was turned down in the last window and there is no longer any interest."
• Arsenal and Tottenham remain favourites to sign him.
Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace reported last week that Ben Wilmot is on verge of leaving the club in the summer.
