Boothroyd bids to bag Bamba

Boothroyd bids to bag Bamba

With Danny Shittu expected to leave Watford sooner or later, the chase for his replacement is on. No doubting Shittu's shoes are big one's to fill, and Souleymane Bamba could be the man to replace big Dan.

Bamba recently linked up with Watford on trial from Dunfermeline Athletic and played 90 minutes in the 3-1 defeat of Borehamwood. Formerly of Paris St Germain and an Ivory Coast 'B' International, Bamba has earnt rave reviews in Scotland, but is out of contract.

At only 23 years old, Bamba would require a compensation package to move to WD18, and SkySportsNews allege Boothroyd has made a 100k bid.

As ever, VitalWatford were on top of things as Dr Watford broke the news that Bamba would feature at Borehamwood before anyone else.
