Watford looking to loan market

Watford looking to loan market

Chairman Jimmy Russo and Manager Malky Mackay have today come out to confirm they are still in the market to add to the current first-team squad.

The Hornet's current squad is paper thin for the first time a season or two, but the Hornet's moneymen have confirmed there will be new faces in the coming days. However, it will mean only loan signings are possible at present having missed the transfer deadline:

'It was a long, busy day and transfer window as a whole, but unfortunately we've been unable to bring in the players we wanted and that's frustrating.

'But, we're now already looking towards the emergency loan window opening and further still to the January window. We certainly haven't finished our activity for the season.'
Said chairman Jimmy Russo.

And, considering Mike 'Judas' Williamson was only sold with 21minutes of the window remaining, it makes sense not to rush into splashing cash on players only signed in a panic.

'That can then be regretted at your leisure and you're then left with someone potentially for the next three years.

'We don't want to bring players in for the sake of it - they have to offer us something new, improve the squad and it has to be right for the Football Club'
Continued Russo.

It seems likely the Hornets will look for a centre back replacement for Mike Williamson as they are now only left with captain America Jay DeMerit, and Aidy Mariappa, who is undeniably stronger at full back opposed to centre back.

A striker looks like it could be a priority unless perennially forgotten man Will Hoskins stakes a sudden an unexpected claim for a first team slot alongside Danny Graham. Deadline day speculation linked the Hornets with 32 year-old former 'Orn legend, Heidar Helguson but nothing materialised. Q.P.R sources are adament the Iceman will make the loan move once the loan market re-opens on September 8th.

Finally, a winger would seem a likely aquisition with The Don, Don Cowie filling in admirably down the right whilst Man United loanee Tom Cleverley slots in down the left of midfield.

In this new age of honest and integrity at Vicarage Road, it's pleasin the Hornet's hierachy have offered this insight into the clubs deadline day dealings and transfer strategy going forward.

Nothing desperately reliable but this is a rumour I have heard from a QPR fanatic mate. I do hope not, we have Severin and Eustace who will do a perfectly good job between them as the experienced CM's this season I feel.
