The tale of the Duke and the Ox

The tale of the Duke and the Ox
The future of Jordan Stewart looks to be at Vicarage Road after it was confirmed the former Leicester left back would be offered a new deal by Watford.

Stewart signed for Aidy Boothroyd in 2005 for 125k. Although his first season at Vicarage Road saw him make a stuttering start the former Bristol Rovers fullback was one of Watford`s most consistent performers last season. As the only left back at the club, Stewart is considered to be a key player and it always seemed likely the Brummie would earn a new deal.

Speaking to the Watford Observer, Aidy Boothroyd had this to say: "He has been one of the most consistent players since I have been here. He`s come so far in such a short space of time. He has dips in form but he`s come back from them and that is the mark of the man he is."

Meanwhile the News of the World is today reporting that Darius Henderson may be allowed to leave Vicarage Road afterall. The paper has declared that the powerful forward would be allowed to pursue his Premiership ambition, if, Nathan Ellington arrives. Aidy Boothroyd has however categorically denied that anyone will be allowed to leave the 'Vic in the next five days. Ellington has managed fifteen goals for current club West Brom in 34 starts and is believed to have twice rejected the opportunity to leave the Hawthorns-the arrival of Ishmael Miller may however tempt the former Wigan hitman South.

Finally, more paper talk; American centre half Jay DeMerit is alleged to have asked for a wage increase that would see him earn 10k per week. There is no official word from either the club or DeMerit however Middlesbrough and Bolton are allegedly tracking DeMerit`s progress.
