Report: Newcastle, Leeds-linked Jokanovic considering 'very good' Watford offer

Watford Vicarage Road

The Serb could well stay on at Watford, although recent reports have linked him with both Leeds and Newcastle - among others.

Watford boss Slavisa Jokanovic is considering a 'very good' offer to stay with the Hornets, according to Sky Sports.

The 46-year-old's current contract expires this summer, prompting reported interest from the likes of Newcastle United, Leeds United, Sunderland and West Ham United.

But Sky Sports say Watford's chiefs are 'relaxed' over Jokanovic's future, with the Serb having just guided the club to promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.

A report from the Daily Mail recently linked Jokanovic with Newcastle and Sunderland, starting a chain of speculation regarding the Watford coach.

And that was followed up by Sky Sports and international journalist Guillem Balague taking to Twitter to declare that Leeds and West Ham are both also interested in the 46-year-old.

All four of the clubs tipped with a move for the Serb have managers in place until the end of the current campaign but no further.

John Carver has far from impressed at Newcastle, while Neil Redfearn's future is uncertain at Leeds. West Ham's Sam Allardyce also faces real doubts over his position, with Dick Advocaat only currently in place at Sunderland on a short-term basis.

As Jokanovic's current employer, though, Watford are clearly in pole position and have a de facto 'first option' on their coach.
