First published in Sport by , Group Sports Editor

Watford are close to receiving a boost going into the New Year after Gianfranco Zola revealed “it looks like” Nathaniel Chalobah will remain on loan at Vicarage Road for the remainder of the season.

The 18-year-old, who was in excellent form in Saturday’s 3-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion, is due to return to Chelsea following tomorrow’s clash with Charlton Athletic.

The Hornets head coach told Sky Sports after the victory at the Seagulls that he hoped Chalobah’s loan spell would be extended but asked about the current situation with the player’s parent club this lunchtime, Zola told the Watford Observer: “We’re working on that. We think that things are going to be okay for us. You never know but it looks like Nathaniel should stay with us.”

He added: “I think it will be very good for him but also for us. Nathaniel has done very well for us and I think he is is getting better and better. I believe that it will be a very good thing for him if he can stay until the end [of the season] with us.”

Will he actually be allowed to play on Saturday, bearing in mind it would cup-tie him?
I can certainly see why we would want to play him, but would Chelsea let us?

now that is really great news as he is arguably the cog in the team at the moment, lets not blow it tomorrow after all the hard work.

on another tact, I feel that we will miss Fitz tomorrow and hope he will not be missing for long.
He has that physical presence that is essential in one of your center backs and whilst I like Hoban and Elkstran and Neutron they do not have the
physique to stand a battering.
----- bags of skill will only go so far in this league

3 points tomorrow then and we start 2013 as we will go on.

Happy New Year All.

My dream got even better we beat the seagulls away 1-3 with Matej Vydra doing a Husien Bolt impression befor tucking away his 12th of the season.
To top it all we got to keep an 18yr old wonder kid till the end of the season with the promise of making five loanees (the pick of the bunch) permanant signings.
I know I will wake up to hear Dyche saying that we have no money for signings and that Troy must be sold to pay for Bassinis' new Roller.
Really must stay off the sherry and mince pies.

On the subject of "Bass" :
Has he been investing in Coventry City on the quiet....

With reference to page 10 of Goals in today's Sun, the latest item for sale in the Coventry City club shop is the Official Coventry City hard hat priced at £3.00 (complete with picture & their quote : it is ideal for those considering constructing a new stadium).
Happy New Year all !

This ticks all the boxes for Chelsea. Chalobah would be about eighth in line for the first team - especially with Lampard now fit and doing the business. They also have McEachran at Middlesbrough - and he has already played a number of first team games.

Also of course he is getting maximum game time - nothing p****s the big boys off more than loaning out people who constantly sit on the bench or worse ! ( Noble ? Trotta ?).

Almost forgot !

Discussions are probably centred on a 'loan fee' now that Chalobah has established his value in the Championship and could obviously get a loan with some of the wealthier clubs - Leicester etc. Abramovic didn't get mega rich without knowing how to cut a deal !

Nathan is clearly going to be a star in the future. I was rather expecting far more from Sean Murray like most others did. Its great to get loaned players in, but as shown in the past difficult to replace when they go back to there mother club. We have suffered in the past when our loaned players leave us. Ben Foster being being a prime example amongst others we have had.. Gianfranco and staff have done brilliantly putting our side together in such a short period of time. To beat such a good side as Brighton was proof of the way our soccer has improved.

Re the loan extentsion this would be great news as it is clear for all to see that the team gel so well and watching NC he clearly has respect for his team mates and a great working relationship with MV. The futures bright the futures YELLOW! Happy New year peeps.
