thumbnail Hello,

The Udinese striker shone during a loan spell at Watford last season, and his representative has revealed West Brom, West Ham, Swansea and Sunderland are chasing him

Four Premier League clubs are competing to sign Udinese striker Matej Vydra on loan for next season, according to his representative.

The 21-year-old impressed during a loan spell at Watford last term - helping his side to reach the Championship Play-Off final and winning the division's Player of the Year award.

And his representative Ondrej Chovanec has revealed Premier League sides West Brom, West Ham, Swansea and Sunderland are all monitoring his progress closely.

Fresh from speaking to Udinese and Watford owner Giampaolo Pozzo on Monday, he told isport.blesk.cz: "We agreed that none of the offers [for a permanent transfer] are in the region that would interest Udinese.

"They don't want to sell him for £8million, so they have given us freedom to discuss loan spells with the Premier League clubs that are interested.

"At the moment we have offers from four Premier League clubs - West Brom, West Ham, Swansea and Sunderland."

He also confirmed the Serie A outfit rejected an offer from Werder Bremen, adding: "At Udinese they don't want Matej to have to get used to life in a different country, so now it seems likely that he will be playing on in England.”
