Everton's Thomas Hitzlsperger could reportedly be on his way out of Goodison Park on loan to promotion-chasing Watford, according to the Daily Mail.

Gianfranco Zola is keen to strengthen his squad as his team pushes for promotion to the Premier League, and has pinpointed the German to bolster his midfield options.

Hitzlsperger has had previous stints with Aston Villa and West Ham, but has failed to nail down a first team spot with the Toffees since joining in the summer.

The midfielder, who is no stranger to English football, is known for his ability from long range and if the loan to the Hornets were to happen then he would become the club's 12th loan signing of the season.

People have criticised the Hertfordshire-based outfit for the amount of loan signings that have arrived this season, most notably Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway after a 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road earlier in the month. 

The League are looking to impose severe restrictions of the signing of loan players after Watford flooded their squad with players from the owners' other clubs - Udinese and Granada. 

However, Zola's men are two points off automatic promotion in the Championship, and see Hitzlsperger as a man who can help them in their final push to finish the season strongly
