'Duke' set to stay for now

'Duke' set to stay for now

In spite of alleged interest in his services from Bristol Rovers, his first pro' club, Nathan Ellington seems set to stay at the Vic' until his contract expires in June.

The Hornet's record signing has been on loan at Greek outfit Skoda Xanthi for the last 12 months and Malky Mackay has not ruled out a permanent move to Greece for the self-styled Duke:

"Nathan`s current situation is that he will come back to us as his loan deal runs out and he is our player.

"We have not had any official enquiries at the moment for Nathan. We have a period coming up where teams look to bring players in during the window again, where in the last couple of months it has been quiet. So I would expect to start taking phone calls.

"I don`t think anything is out of the question at all, it comes down to a decision as to what Nathan would like to do or what the Greek team would like to do.

"He knows the situation he is in at the moment and it is up to himself and other teams to do something about that."


The 29 year-old striker scored seven in 16 Xanthi and was due back in the UK on Wednesday however the snow delayed his travel plans.

When asked on Twitter whether he was embarrassed by his Hornet's record Ellington said:

"Not embarrassed, just disappointed with myself. That`s the only club where I didn`t have good stats. First year on the bench and playing pure long ball didn`t help.

Asked by another fan whether he would sign a less lucrative contract in order to secure regular football for the final six months of his contract, the 'Duke' said:

"I`ll move to another club. I have no doubt I`ll be flying again, I feel great and can`t wait to go somewhere and play regularly again."

Ellington's Watford record stands at 20 league starts, 31 substitute appearances and five goals, his last the leveller at Ipswich Town last season.
