By George! Watford chase left back
Another day, another player. And this time it`s courtesy of our ever so good friends at VitalColchester.
Watford are believed to be in the hunt for Colchester left back George Elokobi, who has handed in a transfer request at Layer Road.
The 21 year old Cameroon-born star was plucked from non leaguers Dulwich Hamlet and is set for big future in the game, according to U`s boss Geraint Williams.
'Big George` has played 36 times for Colchester but is out of contract next summer so it`s likely the Essex club will cash in whilst they can on a player who sensationally walked out on them last month and could command as much as £600k for his talents.
Sky Sports have added that Reading and Celtic are heading up the chasing pack with Norwich, Ipswich, Palace and Charlton, as well as the Hornets, all keen on his signature in January.
