After a saga running nearly as long as Shevchenko’s $Chelski$ move [with less attention], Collins John has joined on-loan from Fulham.

The Dutch frontman has won two full caps and has twenty Premiership strikes to his name having joined the Cottagers three and a half years ago.

With a number of strikers jetting into South London from countries who reguarly produce goal-getters such as Gambon, America and Norway, John was on the way out.

Having twice rejected Watford last season when the club failed to match his ambition and his wages, Aidy will be pleased to finally have gotten his man.

John was previously out on-loan at Leicester for 3months where things didn’t go too well as he notched 2 in 11 whilst suffering from injury.

He is yet to play in the F.A Cup this season so could well be involved tomorrow against Mick McCarthy’s Wolves. It is however more than likely we will see 22 year-old from the bench after the Dukes first Watford goal.

Good luck to Collins in his Watford career!
