Watford have been super quick to distance themselves from speculation in The Sun linking players with moves away from Vicarage Road.

Jobi McAnuff – an apparent loan target for former club Crystal Palace – reckons it`s all smoke without fire, telling the South London Press I`ve just seen the story in the paper and it`s complete news to me?I don`t expect to be leaving the club”.

And now Hornets chief Aidy Boothroyd has hit back at the tabloid speculation insisting “Obviously the deadline`s gone and there`s not too much to write about”

High earners Mart Poom and Damien Francis have both been linked to loan moves to Championship rivals this morning but Boothroyd remains adamant “there`s nothing in it”.

He told the Watford Observer “Nobody`s made contact with me – There`s no point in other people having them on loan if we can use them”.

So, that`s that then?
