Matej Vydra does not want another loan move next season and says he would like to permanently join a Premier League club if he leaves Udinese.
The 22-year-old, who Watford are hoping to re-sign this summer, spent the campaign on loan at West Bromwich Albion but scored just three goals during his spell at the Hawthorns.
This season was in stark contrast to Vydra’s year at Vicarage Road. The Czech Republic international netted 22 goals in 47 matches during the 2012/2013 campaign as the Golden Boys twice missed out on promotion to the Premier League.
Watford are hoping to bring Vydra back to the club as they look to challenge for promotion next season, the striker is keen to remain in the Premier League.
"I don't want another loan spell and to be jumping into a new town year in, year out and getting to know new team-mates and other people from the club," Vydra told Czech news agency CTK.
"It takes you months and then it's almost half of the season gone and you have another half to get some match practice. After all, it's better to sign a contract somewhere for four or five years. That's what I have in mind.
"I am an Udinese player but I have spoken to my agent and he says there's interest in me in England and Germany.
"I said I had wanted to play in the Premier League and I have made that reality. Now I'm keen to stay there.
"The Premier League in England is my priority. Now it depends on whether the clubs reach an agreement and if the Udinese president lets me go.”
