Matej Vydra: Currently on loan at Watford

Gianfranco Zola is optimistic that Watford will finalise the permanent signing of on-loan striker Matej Vydra this week.

Vydra is on loan at Vicarage Road from Udinese, who are also owned by the Pozzo family, and took his tally for the season to 19 with a goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over Bolton.

The Czech has attracted interest from the Premier League, but Zola says Watford are working hard to hang on to the 20-year-old.

"We are working on getting it done this week," said Zola. "I believe both parties want it, so we are trying very hard."

Team-mate Almen Abdi is pleased Watford did not lose Vydra in the January transfer window and is also keen for the forward to stay with the Championship club in the long term.

"We are delighted he is still here and I hope we will see him beyond the summer," said Abdi.

"I have known him for two-and-a-half years now from Udinese. We know each other well and it is an advantage for us."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
