Latest Watford Transfer Rumours

29 Jan 2015 13:56:10
Heard a rumour that Malky Mackay was looking to bring Lloyd Doyley to Wigan from Watford.

This would likely happen once Watford bring in another Centre Back.




23 Jan 2015 10:38:56
Ben Watson will join Watford today on a 2 year deal


28 Jan 2015 17:58:52
Watson has only signed until the end of the season




19 Jan 2015 21:34:30
Watford are still in talks with Crystal Palace to take Adlene Guedioura back until the end of the season, but may have to wait until the end of the transfer window.
They are also in talks with Bolton Wanderers to sign Jay Spearing on a permanent deal, with Lewis McGugan going the other way.




19 Jan 2015 14:26:41
Birmingham City's Demarai Gray will sign for Bournemouth for a fee of around £3million + add ons. Lloyd Dyer has been bought in as his replacement, on loan from Watford.


22 Jan 2015 12:14:46
Dont be silly, if he goes anywhere it will be the prem


I'm not saying we'll sign Gray, although it's being said on Sky that he wants to come to AFCB, but we've heard from countless fans of other clubs before, saying WHY would Fraser, Ritchie, Kermorgant, and now Gray, come to us. Well, I'd say if you watch our progress in the next few years, that'll give you all the answers. I'm not going to be arrogant, and say we'll get promotion this season, but I'm very confident that it will happen in the next couple of seasons, and like those who have recently signed improved long contracts, I suspect Gray also wants to become a part of what's going on here, because frankly, it's quite incredible, whether you like it or not!

15 Jan 2015 20:39:40
Millwall set to sign Diego Fabbrini on loan from Watford. Bolton however want him. He can play wing or upfront.


The deal is done coyl

know it



15 Jan 2015 16:47:50
A swap deal between Watford's Diego Fabbrini and Bolton's Jay Spearing. Both are out of favour at their respective clubs and are also players that both clubs are looking for so a move would suit all parties.

MK Orn

Millwall still in with a shout as a deal has yet to be agreed




13 Jan 2015 11:52:11
Watford are looking at signing Palacios and one other centre midfielder which is John McGinn. Obviously his brother played for Watford and the club enquired in the summer about John. He's out of contract at the end of the season so it's looking like he'll go in this window.




13 Jan 2015 09:59:04
Looks like Aldershot Town striker Brett Williams is off north of the border with St Mirren and St Johnstone keen to take the hitman.

Troy Deeney of Watford on WBA radara.

Gosport Boro striker Matt Paterson being courted by Portsmouth, Oxford, Swindon and now Crawley.

Andy Johnson will snub Wycombe and sign for Luton.

And finally, Rotherham's Fabian Brandy will sign for Rochdale.



14 Jan 2015 13:30:38
quick re-brief of our targets:
Fernando Pacheco - becoming more likely, yet it is getting even quieter as there isn't much notice to this, and it is claimed to be on a loan until the end of the season.
Juan Muniz - all rounded midfielder who can easily give Tomlin a run for his place and is very competitive
Niguez - basically a full on, but younger, version of Whitehead (who is way past his peak in my opinion)

Our right back solution has been resurrected by the arrival of Tomas Kalas so there won't be any more arrivals for the Right back spot, however, two new targets who are under the radar from media have been linked with Boro. These are Tom Cairney who has been mentioned now and again, but nothing has went ahead just yet ( ). The second target is a versatile centre back who can also play in midfield, his name is Marios Oikonomou and he is only 22 years old, so has time to improve even further. He has played for Greece Under 21s and has a good relationship with Dimi Konstantopolous, who we could use to persuade Oikonomou to come to Middlesbrough.

Extra: Mark Hughes has let Robert Huth go out on loan to a Championship club. Watford are winning the race at the moment, but 2 other Football League clubs are interested.


14 Jan 2015 15:21:52
Fernando Pacheco on a loan until the end of the season may have become even more quiet, but it is still going on and is looking increasingly likely as Konstantopolous turns 37, we have Mejias as our back up at the moment and Karanka is concerned that if we get promoted, how will they cope?.

I know we still have Ripley, but he still needs experience, as that is beneficial to both him and the club, look at how Reach and Gibson turned out, an influential duo who play a significant part in Karanka's future plans.

Niguez (also known as Jony) is a younger kind of version of Whitehead is way past his peak, whereas Muniz is a more all-rounded midfielder.


14 Jan 2015 15:24:07
My mate from whom I get my information was here and I put the above names to him. Pacheco remains a target but Ivan Perez Munoz advises that Mejias outshone Pacheco at Madrid, my friend wouldn't be surprised if we swooped for a more experienced goalie whilst he knows Aitor to be an admirer of Muniz and Niguez but not interested in signing either yet (I must stress the yet apparently). He has heard nothing of Cairney but says it could be possible. There is no interest in Oikonomou though my friend is an admirer of his, Karanka has no awareness of the player. Fran Merida deal could be back on after Milos Veljkovic's loan extension failed.


15 Jan 2015 07:08:38
Fernando Pacheco is a younger keeper than Mejias, and Mejias hasn't really proven himself to be an adequate keeper who will be able to replace Konstantopolous in the near future.

Oikonomou is a 22 year old central defender who is well known by Dimi Konstantopolous as they have played in the Greece National acedemy side together, (Oikonomou was just 16 then).

Cairney is a target that is going under the radar as there has been hardly, or no mention at all, yet it is a likely possibility he could arrive in Teesside considering Veljkovic has went back to Spurs, and Whitehead seemingly past his peak and seems to be more fitted to our right back role, thus leaving just Clayton, Leadbitter and our young future prospect Bryn Morris as our only Centre midfielders. Muniz and Niguez are also potential targets to arrive in teesside.

Extra: I've been reading the Evening Gazette and it is suggested that an Emerson-type of midfielder is set to arrive on Teesside. Anyone got any idea who this could be?

Oikonomou and Dimi did not play together in the Greek youth teams because Dimi would have been ineligible to do so six years ago as he would have been 31. Furthermore, Cairney is not someone who the club have expressed an interest in but I personally would love to see him at the Riverside. Muniz and Niguez cannot be called targets yet as Boro have no interest in actually signing them, but Karanka does admire the players. As for the Emerson article in the gazette you have misunderstood. If Pacheco does come in it will be if/when Mejias departs so Pacheco can be second choice goalkeeper

I meant like player/coach type, you know what I mean, sorry about that little mix up.
And no I have not misunderstood the Emerson article as Karanka is looking for a loanee who can replace Milos Veljkovic.
I think everyone would love Tom Cairney at the Riverside! He is a good player and even though it is not out with the media, Karanka isn't impressed with Mejias, so is considering whether it'll be more beneficial to send him out on loan to free up wages or to sell him permanently to free the transfer budget up as well as the wages. What would you do if you were Karanka?


18 Jan 2015 16:35:23
Oh I thought you meant that their was some kind of friendship between the two Greeks. In fact, it's quite probable that the two have never met. The Emerson article was in no way a reference to any potential incomer, it was just to remember a fantastic player. Cairney, ideal signing. Karanka has said he will not sign a new first choice goalkeeper until the summer, but if whether Mejias is sold or loaned out, Pacheco would be the replacement second choice. If I were Karanka I'd pack the poor lad back of to Spain where he is more comfortable




12 Jan 2015 10:16:26

Elliott Bennett will return from Loan and will take up Redmond's vacant position, with Jacob Murphy also returning at the start of February. However, the Tangerines are looking to extend the youngsters loan until the end of the season.

Norwich also interested in signing Demarai Gray from Birmingham.

Watford set to sign Bassong on a permanent deal come January and Norwich have been asked to name a price for the 28 year old centre back.

The Yellows are also looking for a possible loan move of Scott Sinclair in the January window, the winger will be bought in to cover the possibly departing Redmond. Despite Sinclair being on 60,000 a week at City, the Manchester club may be willing to pay a large contribution to his wage bill.


Bassong will sign on loan until the end of the season with Watford


we have already spent a fortune on over valued players based in England. If we are going to buy, then it ought to be on either proven quality, or a gamble on exciting young players who are VALUE for money.




14 Dec 2014 09:54:10
Watford set to sign Ben Gladwin from Swindon Town in January.


Under contract at Swindon, so he won't join as Watford won't pay a fee.

We're just about to pay a fee for Bassong in January so I wouldn't bank on it

09 Dec 2014 13:04:49
