Highly-rated scholar Tommie Hoban has signed a new contract extension with Watford.

The Republic of Ireland Under-19 international signed his first professional contract in May but he has agreed a new deal which will leave him with two years left when his scholarship ends in the summer.

The 17-year-old, who was reportedly a target for Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City, made his first team debut in the final game of last season.
