Vydra, who was Championship Player of the Year in 2013 after a stunning campaign with Watford, joined West Brom last summer on loan from Udinese.

However, the Czech international was limited to just seven Premier League starts, which garnered three goals.

He has now returned to his parent club in Serie A and interest is already mounting in the 22-year-old.

Vydra has told Udinese he does not want another loan spell following his two stints in England and a previous one at Club Brugge.

"I don't want another loan spell and to be jumping into a new town year in, year out and getting to know new team-mates and other people from the club," he told Czech news agency CTK.

"It takes you months and then it's almost half of the season gone and you have another half to get some match practice. After all, it's better to sign a contract somewhere for four or five years. That's what I have in mind.

"I am a Udinese player but I have spoken to my agent and he says there's interest in me in England and Germany.

"I said I had wanted to play in the Premier League and I have made that reality. Now I'm keen to stay there.

"The Premier League in England is my priority. Now it depends on whether the clubs reach an agreement and if the Udinese president lets me go.

Vydra admits he was disappointed by his spell at the Hawthorns.

"I scored three goals, which isn't something great for a striker, but what can I do about it now that the season is over? I don't want to praise myself but, in most cases, when I played from the first minute, I did quite well," he said.

"When you go on the pitch for the last 10 or 15 minutes, then you have little power to do anything."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
