Harper for Hornets?

Harper for Hornets?

Newspaper reports today suggest that Watford are tracking Newcastle United goalkeeper Steve Harper. With the Mancs boss Taggart has admitting he's likely to keep Ben Foster at Old Trafford next season Adie Boothroyd is keen to tempt Harper south by guaranteeing our perennial reserve goalie No1 status at Vicarage Road. Whether Harps fancies dropping down a division and moving away from his home is another matter however.

In the meantime our transfer funds remain slightly tied up as Freddie Shepherd argues the toss with Sepp Blatter over the Owen compo final sum. Reports in the Sunday Sun suggested there had been even more talks, this despite Blatter`s £1m 'take it or leave it` offer. However the paper reports that a compromise seems as far away as ever.
