Watford trialist Ulises De la Cruz has been given a right royal reference by his former Reading boss Steve Coppell, who said he`d 100% recommend him to anyone.

If Hornets gaffer Aidy Boothroyd is listening then Coppell`s seal of approval, on a player who left the Madejski Stadium this summer, might go some way to securing the Equadorian right back a move to Vicarage Road.

Coppell told the Reading official site “Ulises is without doubt one of the best professionals I have ever worked with. If anyone phones me about him, I would recommend him to them 100%, absolutely no doubt”.

This could be music to Boothroyd`s ears after several of his recent signings have struggled to settle in to life at Watford?
