Could Watford loan favourite return to complete a deal?

Watford Vicarage Road 2

Daniel Tozser has revealed that he will not play for Parma, despite only joining the Italian club on Friday, and a move to Watford seems likely.

The Hungarian international spent the second half of last season at Vicarage Road, joining on loan from parent club Genoa in January. He quickly became a fan favourite among the Hornets' faithful, imposing a calming and mature mindset on a team struggling for consistency.

Despite tailing off towards the end of the season, the 29-year old midfielder expressed a desire to return to Hertfordshire, and many fans were pleased with the news that a permanent deal was reportedly close to being tied up.

However, a deal has taken longer than expected, and it came as a shock when Tozser agreed a deal with Parma on Friday. He agreed a two-year contract with the Serie A club, although the Watford Observer revealed that the Hornets were still confident in securing his signature in the coming weeks.

And now the transfer saga has rumbled on, with Tozser announcing that he will not play for Parma this season. Quoted in the Watford Observer, the Hungarian international said: “Just to see clearly I will not play for Parma this season... To be continue!”

To add further fuel to the fire, Tozser has now uploaded a picture of himself travelling with someone who appears to be his agent, and it is believed that he is driving from Italy to meet up with the Watford training camp in Austria to complete his loan deal.

 

The news has been a cause for celebration for the Watford fans, who have been begging Tozser to return on social media since the close of the season. If the business is rounded up in the next few days, Tozser can immediately join the Austria-based training camp, where the squad have been completing double-length training sessions in preparation for the new season.

The Hornets are looking to build on a mediocre 2013/14 season, and are hoping that head coach Beppe Sannino, who replaced Gianfranco Zola last year, can bring a Premier League return to Vicarage Road.
