Britt Assombalonga: Going well at Southend

Watford striker Britt Assombalonga is happy to extend his loan stay at Southend having flourished with the League Two club at the start of the season.

Assombalonga, who has enjoyed prolific loan spells at non-league level, bagged a brace in Saturday's 3-1 win over Dagenham & Redbridge to take his tally to four goals in six appearances.

The forward, 19, moved on a month-long deal last month but as that arrangement prepares to expire this weekend, he is open to continuing his development at Roots Hall.

"I don't mind staying," Assombalonga told United's official website. "I am a Southend player at the moment and I'll speak to the gaffer about what happens next.

"I want to play football, score goals and get 90 minutes under my belt each week so this is a good place to do that."

Speaking after his double downed Dagenham, Assombalonga added: "I could have scored four of five goals as the chances kept on coming but I didn't take them. I've never scored a hat-trick as I keep getting braces. I was hoping it would be the day I got my first one but it wasn't to be."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
