The List.  Every player to have been linked with moves in or out since the closure of the summer window about half an hour ago.  Bit different now for all sorts of reasons, many of them contributing to a far lower rumour count this time around one suspects.  The List will be kept up to date until the closure of the window so bookmark if you Like This Sort Of Thing.  A very low bar of credibility is employed, but a mere “I think Watford should sign…” falls below it.  Previous windows’ lists linked at foot of article.

Here we are again.  Don’t know about you, but I hold even the players that we were linked with but never signed in a sort of reverent awe which is probably unreasonable.  Yves Bissouma will be brilliant for Brighton at some point.  Meanwhile, here’s your list of players linked with the Hornets since the summer, a list that will be kept up to date until the end of January so bookmark if you Like This Sort Of Thing.  A very low bar of credibility is employed, but a mere “I think Watford should sign…” falls below it.

It’s that time again.  The January transfer window opens in, you know, January.  Listed below every player linked with the Hornets or linked with a move away since the last window closed;  as ever, a low threshold of plausibility is applied but clickbait saying “We think Watford should sign…” doesn’t meet it.
