Watford in for a Stern talking to?
Stern John could finally become a Watford player…10 years after Hornets legend Graham Taylor tried (and failed) to lure the player to Vicarage Road.
Reports in the Trinidad & Tobago Express suggest that Aidy Boothroyd`s Watford lead the race to sign the Southampton striker but there is competition from unnamed club in Saudi Arabia and Hull City (of course).
With Phil Brown`s Tigers turning their attentions to £3m Marlon King, Watford might find the door opened up just a bit more in their favour at St Marys and even John is quoted as saying "I know there have been a few clubs showing interest".
It`s no surprise really. Having scored goals for fun at Forest, Coventry and last year for the Saints, John could be the answer to our front line problem but a goal scoring reputation will come with a hefty transfer fee and it`s unlikely the Hornets will be able to match Stern`s current wages…
But stranger things have happened.
