Mackay to open Taylor talks
Following the success of his loan spell to date, temporary Hornet Andrew Taylor is subject to longer-term interest from Malky Mackay come January.
Speaking to The Watford Observer the gaffer confirmed he would open talks with new 'Boro manager Tony Mowbray in the not-to-distant future:
'We have had no communication with Middlesbrough over him coming back. I will talk to Tony Mowbray soon.
'I thought it was important to let Tony get his feet under the table for a couple of weeks so he could see what he had in front of him as he probably couldn't have answered the question about Andrew when he first came in.
'In the near future I will be ringing him to see what the situation is.'
Taylor penned a five-month loan deal back in September which will see him remain in WD18 until the New Year.
However, with a change of manager at The Riverside, the Hartlepool-born full-back may find himself back in favour with six months of his contract remaining.
It was also confirmed by The Watford Observer that former Inter Milan youngster Rok Straus has returned to his parent club Celje after a trial period.
