Matej Vydra: Expected to return to England after impressing on loan at Watford

The Czech forward was brought to the attention of an English audience in 2012/13 while taking in a productive loan spell at Watford - which saw him named Championship Player of the Year and take the Hornets to within 90 minutes of promotion to the Premier League.

Unsurprisingly, he has drawn plenty of admiring glances ahead of the summer transfer window - with West Bromwich Albion, West Ham United, Swansea City and Sunderland said to be keen on bringing him back to England.

Vydra's representative claims a move to the Premier League is now the main focus for his client, with an offer from Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen having been knocked back.

After holding talks with Udinese and Watford owner Giampaolo Pozzo on Monday, Ondrej Chovanec told isport.blesk.cz: "We agreed that none of the offers (for a permanent transfer) are in the region that would interest Udinese.

"They don't want to sell him for £8million, so they have given us freedom to discuss loan spells with the Premier League clubs that are interested.

"At the moment we have offers from four Premier League clubs - West Brom, West Ham, Swansea and Sunderland."

On the decision to reject a move to Germany, Chovanec added: "At Udinese they don't want Matej to have to get used to life in a different country, so now it seems likely that he will be playing on in England."
