Following a nice start to his career at Watford, injury forced Etebo, 26, to miss out on months of football, after which he has been on the sidelines.

 
Watford have an option to sign him permanently should they wish to, but club sources have told the Watford Observer they do not think he will be needed.

New manager Rob Edwards is set for talks with club chiefs in the coming days, during which the current playing squad will be discussed, as the Hornets prepare to clear out players they think are either surplus to requirements, or will bring in money needed to help balance the books ahead of a season in the Championship.

And one such player who the club do not envisage as being part of their future plans is Etebo, who has been on loan from Stoke during the current campaign.

 

Decisions on the future of other players, like Juraj Kucka, whose contract Watford also have an option to extend by a further year, are yet to have been made and will depend on how those conversations with Edwards play out.
