Watford owned Dutch winger Steven Berghuis has been discussing his future and believes it is most likely he will be heading back to Vicarage Road permanently at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old is on loan at Eredivisie title chasers Feyenoord and has been in fine form for the Rotterdam club. Such form has seen him make in-roads with the Dutch national team. In fact, he will represent his nation this week in games against Bulgaria and Italy.

But speaking to De Telegraaf he admitted that Feyenoord may find it difficult to secure his permanent signature and a return to Watford look on the cards:

"As it looks now, I'm just back after this season to Watford. The club has bought me from AZ for €6.5 million.

“But what I Feyenoord should cost now, I do not know. And I'm not asking. That's for after the season."

Berghuis joined Watford from AZ in the summer of 2015, with a report from Dutch paper De Telegraaf claiming a £4.2 million fee.

But he never started a game for Watford in the Premier League, featuring just 11 times in total and was therefore loaned out in the summer.

Now that looks to have been a case of mismanagement from the Hornets, who could certainly do with some of Berghuis’ guile in their wide positions next season.

He is under contract at Vicarage Road until 2019 so still has plenty of time to impress in the Premier League.

Watford should certainly give him a shot.
