Have Hornets 'hammer'ed out deals?
Expect a bombardment of tabloid tittle tattle and rumour mongering linking a host of young Hammers to Vicarage Road this summer after Hornets gaffer Brendan Rodgers called in on an old Chelsea pal last week.
The W`Observer merely pointed out that Brendan Rodgers and Dean Austin spent a rather pleasant Thursday afternoon in the company of West Ham coach (and ol` Chelsea pal) Steve Clarke at the Hammers training ground.
But that`s surely enough to have the lazy journo`s on the redtop sports desks sharpening their transfer speculation pencils with eagerness.
The Hornets were linked with the likes of West Ham`s Freddie Sears (of only) and defender James Tomkin last season without anything materializing and here at VitalWatford we`re preparing ourselves for a rush or reports linking us with some of East London`s hottest prospects after this latest development.
Watch out for names such as Zon Hine (a pacy Jamaican striker), Jordan Spence (a defender who`s captained England at youth level), Kyel Reid (winger with Championship experience in abundance) and Holmar Eyjolfsson (a centre back rock from Iceland).
Either that or Gianfranco Zola is ever so keen to take Nathan Ellington off our hands next season…
Now that really would be something.
