H expect Hoops Return

H expect Hoops Return

Mixed news from the Icelandic press this week regarding Watford's favourite Icelandic son.

Legendary striker Heidar Helguson has confirmed that although Watford are in talks [according to the Watford Observer anyway with his parent club Q.P.R about extending his loan spell, he doesn't expect it to go ahead.

'I do not expect other than a return to QPR in the New Year when the loan agreement runs out. I have not heard that there are any negotiations in progress. I would love to stay with Watford and be them contracted with them, not to be on loan, but I think however that there is not the money in Watford to buy players.'

- A rough translation stolen from wfcforums.com


Helguson is well-down in the pecking order at Loftus Road, but his reported 18k a week wages will be a massive stumbling block for Malky and the Russo's will no doubt want to keep the purse strings well and truly tightly closed.

There is some, slightly hopeful, talk of a swap deal involving Nathan Ellington and H as Jim Magilton is a known admirer of the hapless forward.

Facts are: We cannot afford to offer H anywhere near his £18k / week and at this time in his career/life, H cannot simply turn his back on it . Now he's proven his worth again, and if QPR still dont want him, they will seek tofind a buyer or get themslevs a better loan deal in Jan thanthey have with us (they are currently paying half his wages)

Yep, I agree with all those points. I think the chances of us getting him permanently again are very slim, we can't afford to pay that sort of wage, let alone for a 32, going on 33 year old, so I think a loan 'til the end of the season is as much as we can hope for, or would be sensible really.
