Transfer News At A Glance

Transfer News At A Glance

Watford are in negotiations with Belgian striker Emile Mpenza over a possible January transfer swoop. Mpenza has played in the Champions League with Anderlecht as well as having spells in Germany with Schalke and Hamburg, but the Hornets have concerns over his fitness. At 28 yrs of age he still has plenty to offer, but with the presence of new signings Kabba, Ashikodi and Hoskins it remains to be seen whether this is just speculation.

Watford and Sheffield United are said to be fighting it out to sign Colchester midfielder Karl Duguid. The 28-year-old has turned down the offer of a new contract with the club after 11 years service. Colchester would be willing to sell to the highest bidder rather than lose the player on a Bosman in the summer.

Wideman Keith Gillespie who managed to get sent off after barely arriving on the field against Reading last week is also said to be attracting the interests of Aidy. The former Manchester United player would surely provide wide cover as Boothroyd attempts to fill the void left by Ashley Young departing to Aston Villa.

Late bids before next Wednesday's transfer window closure sees Derby County and Watford going for Dutch Second Division striker Cecilio Lopes. Lopes who is 27 has been prolific this season and has a handsome total of 18 goals from 24 games so far in the Dutch 2nd division. It appears however Derby County looked poised to bid £200,000 and may not be matched by Watford.

According to reports in France, The Horns are closing on the signature of Monaco ace Mohamed Kallon, who moved to the Principality in the summer of 2004 from Inter Milan. The 27-year-old appears to be out of favour at the Stade Louis II, and spent last season on loan with Al Ittihad.

And finally, a word from our manager on our excellent FA Cup win over West Ham,

'It's nice to win and get a bit of momentum. We've done 50 per cent of the job and we've got to come back here in a couple of weeks and get a win.

The lads dug in and scored a goal - we've got to maintain that now.

I'm very proud - we were resolute and resilient and gave West Ham a few problems.

We rode our luck at times and in the end we came through. It's a nice feeling to win two games in a row.'


On Steve Kabba, 'The idea of getting Steve in was to keep the other guys on their toes.

I'm in a great position now as I've got a nice little balance in terms of front players.

It's also got Darius Henderson going, I thought he was great again today.

Steve will come on and play his part, I didn't want to start him because he's had limited games.'
