Hornets have missed out on transfer targets

Hornets have missed out on transfer targets

Sean Dyche has conceded that he has missed out on transfer targets due to financial constraints.

So far Nyron Nosworthy has been the only permanent addition to Dyche's squad but a winger and a creative midfielder are needed.

Speaking to The Watford Observer, Dyche said:

'We have missed out on a number of targets because we just don't have the finances to make it happen immediately.'

Dyche did reveal that the club were 'close' on a couple of deals though:

'We are close-ish on a couple of yes situations. There are things that we have to be forward-thinking on and put things in place but we are always waiting on the other parties to say yes rather than us just having the money to force the yes decision, which is why it is difficult.'

Who would you like to see arrive? What positions do we need to strengthen? Do you expect us to even sign anyone?

I think it is fairly obvious that a winger has to be the number one priority. I do expect us to get someone in even if it is on loan following the closure of the deadline. This article just goes to show the people moaning at Dyche for a lack of pace, just how difficult it is to get our number one target with our budget!

Indeed. It doesn't matter how we get them as long as we get the players we need!

Speaking to well known ex manager, who told me he watched Wichelow play the other day, thought he looked good and promising, spoke about Loach and he says that the general consensus about him, is his positioning is poor. The sacking of Warnock did us no favours in that the sale of one of our players was formerly agreed as far back as Sept. Hence, players were lined up to come in, but because the funds are not in place yet, nothing can proceed. I still expect the club will sell 2 to 3 players and bring in the players that we do need in the areas mentioned by all.
