Hornets striker unlikely to play for club again

Published Add your comment

Nathan Ellington is unlikely to play for Watford again due to financial reasons.

The striker has returned to England following his loan spell at Greek side Skoda Xanthi but has yet to report back to training with the Hornets due to flu.

However despite his recent return, manager Malky Mackay has confirmed he is again ready to offload the club's record signing, who is also believed to be their highest earner, with six months left on his contract.

It is also understood further appearances for Watford could possibly trigger an extra payment to Ellington`s former employers West Brom.

"Nathan has got the flu this week, he has given us a call to say he is back in the country but is unwell and that the doctors have been out to have a look at him," Mackay told the Watford Observer.

"Financially we are not able to include him in the squads. No-one has made an offer for him yet. There have been a couple of teams looking to talk to him but nothing at the moment in terms of that.

"But there is a month ahead of us and there will be plenty of people looking to make changes to their squads so I would imagine somebody will come in."
