Latest Watford Transfer Rumours

27 Jan 2014 14:14:36
Watford have been in talks to sign QPR Defensive Midfielder Samba Diakite on loan until the end of this season. The stumbling block may be his £10k per week wage, so a deal is hoping to be struck.


27 Jan 2014 18:24:39
i think this will not happen as qpr are asking watford to pay his wages and 10k is to much for a 25 year old player who has not played a first team game so far this season

27 Jan 2014 19:40:19
He's on 10k after tax.

28 Jan 2014 15:36:46
Genoa midfielder Daniel Tozser will be joining Watford subject to a medical. He is a Hungarian International who can play Central Midfield or on the left.


28 Jan 2014 18:34:23
good news at last we have got a new player coming to watford hope we get a in pacey front man next?

08 Apr 2014 11:47:53
Daniel Toszer will make his loan move to Watford permanent at the end of the current season.

10 Apr 2014 16:04:29
i think it will happen and hope to sign a forward to if we lose troy deeney

17 Apr 2014 23:25:03
Watford have been monitoring Rochdale forward Scott Hogan and will make a move for him at the end of the current season.



24 Jan 2014 14:32:45
Have heard today that Watford are looking to complete a deal for Derek Boateng and expect it to go through by Monday - it is likely to be a loan until the end of the season for the Ghanaian holding midfielder

Watford are also set to renew their interest in 18 year old Oliver Capper of IFK Norrköping - Watford have been linked with the young Swedish attacker for a couple of seasons now and made a bid for him last January but the youngster was unwilling to move as he wanted to complete his education in his homeland - the interest has been renewed by Sannino and expect to see Capper in a Watford shirt by the start of next season, if not by the end of January.


24 Jan 2014 23:28:25
Oliver Caper isn't even part of the IFK Norrkoping squad.

The Derek Boateng saga has been going on for over a week. Although the club are still in talks with him it's a pure guess that he will sign at this moment in time.

Yes Capper is, although he has been part of the development squad for large parts of the season following injury

I wouldn't call the Boateng story a 'saga' to be honest - Watford went in with a bid which was rejected and in the last two days have gone in with another bid, which has since been accepted - the difference is that Watford are offering to pay a higher % of his wages.


25 Jan 2014 20:46:51
A bid to sign permanently or loan?

I can confirm that Watford have bid to take him on loan until the end of the season, again that might not be final and Fulham are open to a permanent deal


26 Jan 2014 16:27:31
I've just been told that the Capper deal is not going to happen

26 Jan 2014 16:28:35
So what happened to him going to Evian?

Evian have also made a bid for Boateng although I do not have details on the exact terms


I can't say I'm convinced that the Boateng deal will happen.
I would say its more likely that Diakite from QPR is the most likely out of the two.


28 Jan 2014 11:21:49
You got that wrong LondonCorrespondant.


Got what wrong Glennp?


28 Jan 2014 23:07:10
London Correspondant you said Boateng was going to join on Monday and it appears he's not joining Watford at all.
Basically it was rubbish you reported!

No sir, you are incorrect - I stated that we made a bid for the midfielder, which is fact, and that I personally believed the deal would go through - it didn't, as other preferred targets were secured.


I wouldn't say other targets were preferred - more a case of he didn't want to join and was looking at other options. Therefore Watford had to move on to Plan B.


Oh do you know him or his agent personally Glennp?


25 Feb 2014 12:29:59
Lets just say, judging by what you have written, you are not ITK as much as you claim.




20 Jan 2014 10:30:00
Torini will test Watford with a bid of £5 for Marco Davide Faraoni.


That should have read Torino and £5m


20 Jan 2014 13:01:26
Now you are no longer allowed to have all those loan players from the Pozzo's other clubs, don't you think it would have been better for Watford to build it's own squad with players they actually own. Look where it got you. Nowhere. Hindsight eh?

A majority of the loan players from last season signed permanent contracts this season.


20 Jan 2014 13:42:36
We don't need them on loan as we signed them all on permanent deals this season. Someone needs to do their homework. On the rumour, £5 million for Faroni is a good deal


20 Jan 2014 15:57:25
QPR are lining up a £3 million pound bid for Watford sriker Troy Deeney. They want him to partner Charlie Austin.


20 Jan 2014 17:14:46
not going to happen as troy deeney is staying as long as watford stay in championship and watford bring in some new bloody.

Watford hoping to sign knockaert from Leicester on loan to end seaon

West drayton

{Ed010's Note - what!!? Why would Leicester loan out one if there star players?? Laughable!!

Besides, he is not the sort of player we require at watford.


21 Jan 2014 11:29:31
And what sort of player is that?

Meaning the club are looking at strikers and Defensive midfielders


22 Jan 2014 19:07:38
bring back danny graham to watford on loan he will bang in the goals and will be a hit with fans and sign chris eagles from bolton not getting many games and bolton need the money.



18 Jan 2014 13:09:57
Watford are interested in signing Terrence Boyd from Rapid Wien and have enquired again about Bjorn Sigurdarson from wolves


19 Jan 2014 09:44:57
They certainly need new blood. The way this season is going a relegation battle seems the most likely



15 Jan 2014 14:24:31
17 year old Antonio Vutov Will be sent to Watford from Udinese as the pacy striker they require.


He is more of a winger


17 Jan 2014 23:01:07
Watford have approached Hull City for striker Matty Fryatt and hope to tie up a loan until the end of the season.



15 Jan 2014 14:23:58
Don Cowie going to Burnley, loan till the end of the season. Dyche is a big fan and knows him well from when on Mackay's coaching staff at Watford.

That would make sense now since Mackays departure. He was getting game time before but Solksjaer will utilize attacking wingers now. Solid player.




15 Jan 2014 13:57:11
Watford have agreed a free transfer of Alejandro Faurlín, the player is keen on linking up with Beppe Sannino again.

No transfer fee will exchange hands but a large sell on percentage has been agreed.

QPR are keen to reduce their wage bill before they spend big on a new striker.

15 Jan 2014 14:12:31
Ali faurlin is injured. Out for the season.

Watford do not need another midfielder and not one that is often injured




15 Jan 2014 13:55:03
Craig Mackail-Smith Will move to Watford by end of transfer window. Watford looking for forward and Craig will finally make it back to his home town team.


This is 100% not true Craig is still not back in full training after rupturing his achillies and is due back training at the end of Jan so will NOT pass a medical and he has also stated that he wants to stay at brighton and be apart of Oscar Garcia's plans


15 Jan 2014 17:28:27
Love to no were this rumour has come from, me hornet have you been bored and thought you would put something on here for a laugh, buy a lottery ticket more chance with that than Smith leaving,




15 Jan 2014 13:51:20
Watfords Tommie Hoban is close to agree terms on a 350k move to QPR.

Lol. why not just buy as out? Linked with every player we got


What is wrong with you?
Hoban is only just returning from injury and will be part of the Watford squad for the foreseeable future.




13 Jan 2014 05:50:48
Almen Abdi will complete a 3.5 million move from Watford to QPR this week.


13 Jan 2014 10:12:47
Hilarious, he's not played since August with an injury that could keep him out for the rest of this and possibly next season but apparently QPR want to pay £3.5 mill for him. NEVER going to hapen


Abdi could be back tomorrow according to various sources Twitter. However I seriously doubt that we would let him go, especially for 3.5mil.




10 Jan 2014 17:15:23
Watford have made an approach on fulham a Derek boateng who has not played soo much since joining fulham in the summer.


12 Jan 2014 12:53:11
Facundo P�riz

chinese alan

Will not be joining as Watford will complete the loan signing od George Boateng from Fulhambefore this weekend


Surely you mean Derek Boateng


Yes Derek, but that now won't happen. The player was holding out for better offers.




10 Jan 2014 17:01:47
Watford are looking to sign a packet striker and a holding midfielder as the club is looking to sign 2 more players before the transfer centre closes




03 Jan 2014 21:53:41
Watford are getting Chelsea's centre half Tomas Kalas on loan for the rest of the season.


He'll more than likely end up at middlesbrough due to the Boro-Chelsea link up


06 Jan 2014 11:35:20
Hardly needed at Watford.
Watford need a Defensive Midfielder




02 Jan 2014 15:24:32
Bradford City will be bidding for Fc Halifax Town striker Lee Gregory IF they sell Nakhi Wells to QPR, Watford or Celtic


07 Jan 2014 22:17:30
Nahki Wells is likely to join Aston Villa.

Watford have had a bid for Billy Sharpe turned down, but may return pending Will Buckley's sale to Sunderland. Watford will receive 15% of the transfer.



02 Jan 2014 12:42:30
Matias ranegie will be joining watford on a permanent deal while merkel will be on loan untill end of the season as it's rumoured




01 Jan 2014 22:55:28
Puzzle have reportedly said they want to send Udinese striker Agyemang Badu to Watford on loan, the pacy forward has been seen in Watford.


Meant Pozzos XD


He's a defensive midfielder, not a striker


02 Jan 2014 13:37:11
He's actually a defensive midfielder. not pacey striker.

Liverpool are interested in him, I know who i'd rather go to




31 Dec 2013 18:46:15
OFFICIAL: Watford have signed Alexander Merkel from udinese. The player himself has confirmed on twitter and is believed to be a permanent deal and is also pictured signing a contract on his profile. Club to confirm the deal tmorrow hopefully.




31 Dec 2013 15:10:07
Alexander Merkel and Mathias Ranegie from Udinese to Watford on loan to push Watford to the play offs




31 Dec 2013 14:33:31
Watford are interested in signing former player Britt Assombalonga back from Peterborough, just a matter of months after they sold him to the League One club


01 Jan 2014 12:36:23
Dont think Watford have 5 million to spend!

We can sign him for the same price that we sold him, as we had the first option of resigning him for the same price, regardless of form


You are wrong there Tomcobbing. First option is different to what you are refering too. What you are saying is you have a buy back clause which you don't.

First option is IF we accept a bid from other clubs say it is £3.5m and £4m respectively Posh have to notify Watford and offer them the first option on the lowest price that has been accepted.

Bad luck my friend you certainly won't get him back for just the £1m plus we bought him for.


Yes you have first option but I doubt very much that a fee has been agreed. basically all this means is that we cannot sell him to another club until we have approached you and asked if you want to buy him back, if you say no or a deal cannot be agreed then we can then negotiate with other clubs, but this can be pointless because we would only more than likely sell if a much bigger club comes in for him, and if a club came in for him that was more appealing to him than Watford it is ultimately down to the player because yes if you match the offer we have to accept yours first but the player would know what club came in for him that triggered this clause and therefore he doesn’t have to accept your contract offer.

You paid £1.2m for him and Watford have a 50% sell on clause so not quite the £5m that you would be hoping for


Does anyone read previous posts on here, Assombalonga wouldn't go back to Watford now, the loan rules have been sorted out which means your back to being middle of the pack championship at best, assombalonga is premiership bound when he goes


19 Jan 2014 21:30:27
TomCobbing, that is the single stupidest thing ever posted, if you truly believe that then you follow the wrong sport chap



31 Dec 2013 00:15:51
Watford will sign Alexander Merkel and Mathias Ranegi from Udinese on a 5 month loan in January with a view to a permanent move in the summer Merkel is highly rated in Germany


31 Dec 2013 14:35:34
They were both at the game on Saturday in the directors box.



22 Dec 2013 21:36:45
Watford set to launch a bid for Bradford City striker Nahki Wells. A £1. 2M bid will be made in January.


23 Dec 2013 07:53:57
Seems a strange thing to do. Sell Assombalonga for £1.2m, who is now the leading scorer in League One, and buy Wells for the same price, who's not the leading scorer.

I think Bradford would want more than that anyway, so I can't see it happening, certainly not in the inflated January market.

He'll stay at Bradford until the end of the 2013/2014 season and maybe until the January transfer market of 2014/2015 if Bradford get promoted.


23 Dec 2013 11:12:23
He's not going to Watford. West Ham are dark horses here and will put in a higher bid than that

Doesnt make any sense? It was reported from several sources that BCFC turned down £3m from QPR in the Summer. Why would they accept £1.2m? Now if somebody offers £5m you might get a sniff, as that boy knows where the net is.


27 Dec 2013 12:40:58
He's going to Leeds deal will be done by the start of the window

30 Dec 2013 09:18:49
Deeney may be off to Crystal Palace which would give Watford a better financial chance of securing the signing of Nakhi Wells.


02 Jan 2014 10:35:42
Nakhi is a good prospect but won't be coming to the Vic.



18 Dec 2013 18:37:52
ebanks blake to sign for ipswich town fc soon after playing watford on saturday


Yum, this humble pie tastes great. Sorry Bown for ever doubting your Mystic Meg-like qualities




28 Nov 2013 20:55:21
Udinese will transporting Nicholas Lopez the Uruguayan attack talent to Watford in to January.

amante del calcio

Unlikely. He will either stay with Udinese or be loaned to a Serie B club.


05 Dec 2013 15:11:57
Prejuce Nakoulma a striker from Burkina Faso is being looked at by Nani. He is valued at 2m Euros by his current club Gornik Zabrze, but only has a year left on his contract.




14 Nov 2013 08:44:09
Ipswich are keeping an eye on the progress of Nyron Nosworthy. The Watford defender is currently working his way back from an injury but is in the last season of his contract.


15 Nov 2013 18:28:20
no way will this happen as he still coming from injury

He's almost certainly going to be considered for Watford's starting eleven when he comes back from injury

chinese alan



10 Nov 2013 22:49:16
Watford are looking to sign 18-year-old defender Adam Webster from Portsmouth.




03 Nov 2013 12:24:40
Watford are interested in bring Republic Of Ireland striker Shane Long on loan up until the end of the season due to a poor run of games from Troy Deeney. The West Brom forward has been lacking first team football this season and could possibly take up the offer

What do you think ED?


{Ed003's Note - Could only see a loan move until January to be honest and then he could possibly move to a Prem team,just my opinion.}

04 Nov 2013 03:33:22
Ive heard whispers that vydras loan will be terminated as he is not getting enough game time to develop and will be re loaned to wfc

In January Watford will be looking to bring in a CF and two midfielders. Ranegie may well be the forward


07 Nov 2013 15:35:20
shane long won't be loaned out, he started the last game and is a important squad member. vydra is set to get his chance


07 Nov 2013 18:18:19
Vydra is likely to return to Udinese after Christmas

Vydra hasn't had much game time due to injury


Shane long to watford don't be silly




30 Oct 2013 10:30:34
Watford fc are rumoured to bring in nicklas bendtner on loan


30 Oct 2013 13:56:05
no thanks he is a donkey

30 Oct 2013 20:12:52
It's not going to happen

02 Nov 2013 20:56:27
After today's performance against Leicester I think we need 4 or 5 new players.

{Ed039's Note - With the budget available to them and the squad already there, Watford should be doing better)

With Vydra we played 352 and were unpredictable. We now play 3511 and Deeney is isolated most of the time. Experienced managers we come up against know how we set up and Zola appears not to have the players or the sense to overcome. We need a natural goal scorer. where from is another issue. We have an almost non existent left side attack. Doyley and Pudil are so off the pace it puts too much pressure on the centre backs. The pair of them are so uncomfortable on the ball and we continue to play daft one- twos inside our own half and end up giving the ball away. Close passing is great and easy on the eye. so long as it works.
Ok so I know I will get some flak but we will not get to the play offs with the current squad. We do need better players in but how you use them is more important. It's all very well having some Fancy Dans who produce odd moments of brilliance but consistency and physical strength are the keys to winning a division like this. This obsession with rotation only disrupts a side who are now showing signs of lack of confidence.
So do we need 4 or 5 players. yes. but the right ones! Two full backs. a strong midfield general alongside Abdi and a proper striker. not much?
Have we underperformed. not yet but watch out.
Do we need a new manager. No. but please change the system!




18 Oct 2013 23:52:01
QPR, Leicester city and watford are after Chelsea's yossi benayoun. Watford leading the race as reports suggest there are in advanced talks with the player. Zola has strong relations with Chelsea so yossi is likely to go to watford


{Ed001's Note - he is a free agent, so Chelsea have nothing to do with this.}

19 Oct 2013 01:32:26
Brighton and charlton also want him but he said he would only join a second division team if there challenging for promotion

Burnley it is then


19 Oct 2013 19:10:21
I would suggest we (Watford) couldn't afford his wages and Leicester or QPR will match his demands.


19 Oct 2013 19:33:34
Second division club? I think you mean top 10 Championship club.
Not sure how Watford would be able to meet his wage demands.



09 Oct 2013 07:52:58
Watford are in the market to sign George Thorne on loan from The Albion, according to a Journo in the midlands.

It appears that WBA are not willing to loan him at the moment


22 Oct 2013 09:41:40
Possibly off to Derby




05 Oct 2013 14:42:03
Udinese will send highly rated attacking midfielder Piotr Zielinski on loan to Watford in January.
