Wilmot sets sights on Watford role
Ben Wilmot says he is delighted to be back at Watford and raring to go ahead of the new Premier League season.
The 19-year-old signed last summer from Stevenage and, after a couple of cameos for the Hornets, spent the second half of last season in Italy on loan at Udinese.
There remains some debate regarding whether Wilmot will make his career in central defence or midfield but he insists he is "comfortable" in both positions.
With the options he provides, the Hitchin-born star could be used more frequently by Javi Gracia and believes he is ready to make an impact.
"It feels really good to be back and I'm happy to see all the lads and to get cracking with this season," Wilmot said.
"I want to play as much football as I can. I would love it if I could play a lot here but if I need to play elsewhere to get the games that I need then I'll do it, but my aim is to play here as much as I can."
On his preferred role, he added: "I'm comfortable in both positions. If I had to choose it would probably be centre-half but I am comfortable slotting in to holding midfield, or whatever, but if I had to pinpoint a position for myself it would be centre-half."
