Loach - I just wanna stay at Watford

Watford and England U21 stopper, Scott Loach, has told that he just wants to keep learning his craft in the comfort of Vicarage Road - rather than be benchwarming in the top flight - after signing a contract extension to 2013.

The Young Lion - who picked up his 17th international cap in last night`s 2-1 defeat to Greece - saw Watford reject a deadline day switch to Spurs and the extra year on his existing contract is unlikely to deter the vultures from the Hornets door in the summer.

In fact that extra 12 months might just secure a larger fee for the cash strapped club coffers at Watford if (or when) Loach leaves to balance the books.

But a "delighted" Loach is having none of it and insists "I just want to stay [at Watford] and keep playing ...I want to continue to rack up games with Watford and that`s all I ever wanted to do".

The former Bradford and Morecombe loanee added "...if I can stay [at Watford] while they develop and help me develop them it will be good - I want to play games and I am only 21".

And Braveheart Hornets boss Malky Mackay has admitted that he`s chuffed the Loach did not have a bout of the 'ol Mike Williamson`s' about him, telling the 'fficial site "Scott was very clear in letting us know that he wanted to stay here and wanted to play every week. It would have been quite easy for him to force the club`s hand and demand a move to a Premiership club..."

In all, It`s certainly very refreshing to hear that a hot prospect is happy and content with life in WD18 and not lure by the filthy lucre and bright lights of the big league.

Of course the better the contract the player is on, it would justify commanding a higher transfer fee.

Good news for all concerned. However £3m would be a big boost to us and replacing a keeper is not that hard,indeed I have no real issue with Lee. I suspect that there are release clauses in the contract anyway, but at least Scott seems to be a pretty straightforward guy so when he moves there should be no hard feelings.

I think both Loach and Lee will go in the summer.

There has not been a big clamber for Lee, if Loach was to go, then maybe that opens the door for Lee, so lets wait a see Goats.

Lee is out of contract. IF MM thinks Loach will be sold then Lee will not be released, if he expects SL to stay then RL may go.
