Hornets supremo Aidy Boothroyd has declared that he is more likely to be shipping yet MORE players out than bringing any in today, deadline day for four months.

‘Baton down the hatches and switch off mobiles, we don’t want to lose any more players before the transfer window closes.’


Watford have lost several key players over the Summer, most notably the like of Darius Henderson and Danny Shittu and without last terms two top scorers Watford have lacked cutting edge in frot of goal.

One player linked with a late swoop to Vicarage Road is Crystal Palace’s James Scowcroft, wanted by a number of Championship clubs. Neil Warnock’s 500k asking price will surely prove a stumbling block unless someone departs.

Meanwhile, Reading boss Steve Coppell went one better in his post match interview after thumping Palace 4-2 on Saturday. The ex-Manchester United winger confirmed that sadly his phone had fallen from his pocket and broken and that a replacement would arrive in the next week!

One man on the move is Sol Bamba who has joined Hibernian for 100k from Inverness.
