Watford`s new ‘footballing consultant` Frank Lampard Snr reckons he`s already out and about sniffing out fresh new talent to bring to Vicarage Road?and quick.

The W`Ham legend was drafted into new look Hornets backroom team to build on Brendan Rodgers’ extensive knowledge of hot prospects hidden away in Premier League squad lists…and he`s has wasted no time acting on it.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Lampard Snr said “I will be helping Brendan in any way I can, with individual coaching, looking at the opposition and running the rule over potential signings.”

He added “We need to get a few in quickly and will we be looking carefully at the loan market”.

In fact, Lampard Snr was running an eager eye over prospective loanees, just 5 hours into the job – checking out the talent on show during Spurs` 2-0 reserve team defeat to Stoke at Leyton Orient`s Brisbane Road ground.

And heaven forbid, that opens the floodgates for the transfer speculation to begin?

Chelsea`s Ben Sahar and Scott Sinclair have already been linked to the Hornets by a dog-earred sports hack short on a story whilst Dorian Dervite of Tottenham is another name to emerge this morning?.

Quelle surprise.
