Ex-Hornets on the move

Ex-Hornets on the move

It`s been a busy fortnight for ex-Hornet`s with two tying up contracts with new clubs and another reportedly stuck in the middle of a three-way tussle with clubs from all corners of the globe.

The most obvious and of course controversial of course has been the permanent transfer of former Hornet`s goal-getter Marlon King to Coventry City, linking up of course with former gaffer, Aidy Boothroyd at the Ricoh. Unless you`ve been hidden under a rock for the past year, you`ll be well versed in the plight of old King Marlon, who has been training with the Sky Blues for the past few weeks and after months of speculation the 30 year-old former Jamaica international has put pen-to-paper on a contract with the Midlanders.

King`s initial stay at the Ricoh will be for nine months though if he re-captures the form he showed under Boothroyd at the Vic` it`ll be no surprise to see the former Wigan, Barnet, Forest and Gillingham hitman extend his deal.

Another former striker on the move recently, was Theo Robinson. The one-time 'prospect` has joined yet another former Hornet in Kenny Jackett in South London, after agreeing an 'emergency-loan` deal with Millwall. The pacey forward left the Hornet`s last summer in a deal worth around 275k to join League One high-fliers Huddersfield Town. However the former Southend and Hereford loanee found himself behind Lee Novak and Jordan Rhodes this season so has made the step back up to the Championship on a temporary basis. Just in time to debut against Watford on Saturday, naturally.

Finally, it`s the strange case of former skipper and USA international, Jay DeMerit, stuck in the middle of a continental tug of war for his services, apparently. The former Northwood and Chicago Fire centre-half, having spent the Summer on World Cup duty with the States, is wanted by Steve McClaren at Wolfsburg. Apparently. He`s also wanted by David Moyes at Everton. Apparently. More realistically however, The Vancouver Whitecaps are currently negotiating a deal with the free agent according to American sports new outlet, Soccer Fanhouse.

Whether Jay can really do a job in the Premier League after his performances of the last two years, and whether indeed there is even a shred of truth in the fact DeMerit could be joining Everton`s deep defensive ranks remains to be seen. The likelihood of a move to the Bundesliga is only marginally less far-fetched, but with McClaren`s men having only recorded their first win of the season last week, perhaps the 30 year-old is the answer to a leaky defence? Jay himself had mooted the idea of moving abroad but a deal back home seems most likely for the Wisconsin-born defender.
