Rumours abound today which have made their way Down Under that Watford could make a surprise move for little known Aussie attacking midfielder Mark Bridge.

The Australian version of 4-4-2 magazine is speculating that 22 year old Bridge, who plays for Hyundai A-League side Newcastle Jets, has a ‘Euro` release clause written into his contract and the Hornets are tracking his progress.

Bridge was linked to fellow A-Leaguers Sydney FC and Central Coast Mariners in recent weeks, has an impressive strike rate for the Australian U23 side and netted 9 in 9 games for the U20 Young Socceroos side.

Yet its widely reported across the world wide web that his club form of late has been hit and miss and a return of 12 goals in 46 games against the ludicrously named likes of Queensland Roar and Wellington Phoenix has hardly set the world on fire.

Typical Aidy kind of signing then really?
