Watford say they have ended their interest in Stevenage defender Ben Wilmot.
A Watford spokesperson has told Sky Sports News that the club had a £500,000 bid turned down in January and are now pursuing other options.
A separate source has told Sky Sports News that Stevenage now value the player at more than £1million.
Brighton are another club understood to be interested in Wilmot, as well as several Championship clubs.
Wilmot was not in the squad for Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Mansfield, after he was omitted from the squad for the previous game at Newport.
The 18-year-old central defender has played 15 games for Stevenage this season, picking up two bookings.
Stevenage are 16th in League Two and eleven points clear of the relegation zone, having won two of their previous seven matches.
