Arsenal target Scott Loach has warned potential suitors that he will not leave Watford to sit on the bench.
The England Under 21 stopper has been on the radar of both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks, but the keeper has thrown a spanner in the works of a possible move.
21-year-old Loach has been a regular first team player at Vicarage Road for the last season and a half, and impressed a host of Premier League clubs with his athletic ability between the posts.
Both Spurs and Arsenal are looking to add goalkeepers in north London, with the Gunners needing competition for Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski. Tottenham meanwhile are looking to add a second keeper to the squad following the long term injury to Carlo Cudicini.
Loach has spoken on the speculation, and with Watford in some financial trouble, the keeper might be forced to leave the club if a decent offer comes in.
"I'm confident I can go somewhere and break in somewhere, but it's all about games and I just want to keep learning," said Loach.
"If I can play another 60-100 games here and then move on then I'll be in a much better position.
"I see myself in the newspapers and it brings a smile to my face as the Premier League is where I want to be. It's an honour to be linked with those clubs and, if that happens, then brilliant but it would also be brilliant staying here."
