Steve Beleck remains a Watford player despite appearing to suggest his future may lie elsewhere earlier this week.

The on-loan Udinese striker has not featured in a Hornets matchday 18 since the middle of September and on Monday tweeted ‘Ciao Watford’.

Ciao can either mean hello or goodbye in Italian, but some fans took his tweet to mean the latter given his lack of first-team opportunities.

However, Gianfranco Zola said this lunchtime: “The situation is he is here. Unfortunately he is one of those players who has so far been penalised, like Chris Iwelumo.

“They’re very good professionals, they’re working very hard, but they don’t get much space at the moment.

“Yes, he wrote it down, I don’t want to make a big fuss of that.

"I can understand that he’s training every day and he’s not getting many games, but the situation is that he is a Watford player and he’s going nowhere for the moment and we intend to keep him because we value him.”
