Almen Abdi: Has impressed during loan stay

Almen Abdi has confirmed that talks have opened about a permanent switch to Watford from Udinese.

The midfielder was one of 10 players to arrive from the Serie A side last summer shortly after the Hornets' takeover by the Pozzo family, who control both clubs as well as Spanish side Granada.

Abdi has proved a successful addition having made 24 league starts and scored eight goals, the third-highest among Watford's ranks behind 19-goal top scorer Matej Vydra, another Udinese loanee who is also in talks to turn his season-long stay into a permanent deal.

Abdi, 26, is giving little away as to the progress of the discussions, but told the Watford Observer: "Yes (talks have started) but I can't say anything about it at the moment. We have talked a little bit.

"Of course I like the football, I like being near London, I like the club and the guys here but I can't say anything because it is too early."

Watford are currently third in the Championship and out of the automatic promotion places on goal difference.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
