Watford's new manager Sean Dyche will not be rushing to buy a replacement for striker Danny Graham.

Graham, 25, was sold to Swansea for a club record £3.5million earlier this month, but Dyche, unveiled as Malky Mackay's successor last week, will be taking a look at the strikers currently at Vicarage Road.

"It's a great opportunity for our in-house people to be his replacement. We've got strikers here who, if it was me, I'll be promoting the fact they should be champing at the bit," said Dyche.

"Not to be the next Danny Graham, to be their own version of a great centre-forward who can score goals. It's a tremendous and really exciting challenge."


Dyche said he would have to be "wise" with how he would spend limited funds on team strengthening.

He added: "We're not in a position to literally cherry-pick players who fit certain holes. So what we've got to do is be flexible with our thinking about different players who can play different positions and they're the kind of players we want."
