Dyche: 'I've not got to sell anybody'

Dyche: 'I've not got to sell anybody'

Hornet's boss Sean Dyche brought good news today as he revealed that the club were not in a position where they would need to sell players in January.

The last few seasons have seen the 'Orns left with their hands tied in January often losing some of their better players. This year the January transfer window looks to be different though.

Speaking to The Watford Observer, Sean Dyche confirmed that he would be under no pressure to raise his own funds in January:

"No, I have not got to sell anybody.

"It is a positive in a way that people are always looking at our players but we certainly are not under pressure in a sense that someone has said 'you have to do this or you have to do that`.'



Striker Marvin Sordell is likely to attract attention and VitalWatford understand that there has been tentative interest from a Premier League club since deadline day in August.

Scott Loach and Aidy Mariappa are two of Watford's other salable assets, but it looks like (hopefully), there will be no departures from Vicarage Road next month.

Dyche also confirmed that there was no set budget for him to use in January just yet, but that the board would try and be flexible if the right player was available at the right price.

The gaffer also confirmed that the loan deals of Michael Kightly and Nyron Nosworthy are something he would look into in January. The duo are probably off-limits financially for the Goldenboys but with Noworthy out of favour at Sunderland an extended loan deal could possibly be in the pipeline.

Kightly's future looks more likely to be at Molineux dependent on whether or not the winger can get a run of games with Mick McACarthy's side.
