Watford are being linked to a move for Crystal Palace targetman >(and poor mans Hendo?) James Scowcroft?though the suggested £500k asking price seems a bit steep!

The dog eared hacks down on the sports desk at The Sun have hinted that the Hornets are in a race with Preston and Cardiff City for the signature of the Eagles journeyman striker.

But surely the former Ipswich, Leicester and Coventry frontman won`t suit Aidy Boothroyd`s preference for a new passing game?

Scowcroft, who has played as part of a 3 man front line at Selhurst Park, has netted 14 times in 63 starts for Palace.
