Watford are considering bringing Cardiff City midfielder Don Cowie back to the club on a free transfer

Watford Observer: Picture: Action Images Picture: Action Images

Watford are considering re-signing Don Cowie whose contract at Cardiff City expires at the end of this month.

The midfielder has been offered a new deal by the Bluebirds but could leave on a free transfer.

Several sides are interested in Cowie with Glasgow Rangers, Burnley, Blackburn Rovers, Huddersfield Town all reportedly interested in a move for the 31-year-old.

Cowie began his career at Ross County and made 191 appearances for the club before joining Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2007.

He spent 18 months at Caley Thistle and impressed. He scored 12 goals in 59 league matches and earned a move to Vicarage Road in February 2009 for a nominal fee, believed to be around £50,000.

He signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Hornets and quickly established himself as a first-team regular.

Cowie made 11 appearances in his first six months at the club and then featured 44 times in his first full season with Watford, scoring twice.

He played another 39 games during the 2010/2011 campaign before controversially leaving for Cardiff on a free transfer in July 2011.

Cowie was out on contract that summer but the Hornets believed he had a clause in his deal that entitled the club to activate another year.

However, representatives for the midfielder disagreed with Watford over the interpretation of the clause.

Cowie was then offered a new contract by Watford, which we understand would have made him one of the highest paid players at the club, but he was able to leave Vicarage Road for nothing and join former Hornets boss Malky Mackay in south Wales.

The Scottish international has made 99 appearances for Cardiff but only 22 of them came last season as he struggled to remain in the first team.

With the arrival of Bas it was obvious that things at the Vic were not right. That is why MM jumped ship so you can't really blame DC for taking an opportunity when it arose. But I agree he could have come clean and stated his reasons for leaving. He played well in Cardiffs promotion year, so he might be of use to us. But after reading some of the posts on here, why would he want to come back?

With the number of clubs reportedly interested I wold doubt we would match some of the wages being offered. At 31, he will be looking at the best available wage and a three year contract. Further, would he want to return to Watford where he obviously did not want to stay previously? And where he is not welcomed by some supporters? He won't return here.

Agreed. Don't think we'd be his first choice plus we'd be outbid in terms of wages anyway. My guess is he'll go to Burnley.

Cowie was a good player for us - one that managers love as he gives 7/10 minimum performance every game - solid covers it. However this might be a step back. Where is he going to play in our current system ? Defensive midfield - prefer Tozser - a more important player in that position. Not quick enough for wing back and not dynamic enough for Abdi role. So where ?

I am concerned that we are again being linked with so many players. I think we have the nucleus of a strong squad that needs may be 5 or 6 additions in total (not 10, 11, 12 like last 2 summers). GFZ did a fantatic job to get all the new signees to gel in 2012/13, but less well last term. The squad needs stability - I want to see if some of this year's players that performed averagely can adjust e.g Faraoini, Ranegie, even Fabbrini (if still here) and play to their potential.

As regards Cowie's means of departure, I have no problem - not now. The Baz era was not our finest and at least some of us thought that we would struggle under Dyche, which we did for 2/3s of that season. The instability throughtout the Russo/ Ashcroft/ Baz era is hardly likely to inspire confidence in the players. It's a short career and if Cowie had a family to provide for then I think his decision was understandable - and the right one for him as Cardiff got to the League Cup Final and won promotion. Remember he is a mercenary like all footballers, not a fan. And it his not his fault that the club got the clause in his contract wrong - that's down to somebody'a incompetence.

I've watched our change to 3-5-2 these last few seasons and often thought the right wing-back role is made for DC. He had huge energy and no little skill. The number of goals he set up for Danny Graham & Helgusson on his brief return made him a very valuable asset. he was one of the few who had the footballing intelligence to keep up with Cleverly (who admittedly has not gone on as he should have.) I'd definitely take DC back if he was available.

Yep, have to agree. He followed Malky, not necessarily Cardiff and the wages were far more than he ever would have got here. Lot's of time has passed. I say forget it and move on. I would welcome him back. He scored a few valuable goals for us too. Just my opinion.

Interesting whether he'd play on the wing or in the centre for us in the event of his return. He was never much of a defender, which is kinda necessary in a 3-5-2, but on the other hand we already have loads of good players in the middle of the park.

If this rumour is true, I reckon it's yet more evidence of a change in tactics next season.

I'm definitely prepared to forgive him if he comes back and plays well. He was one of the players who held the team together for a while. Whenever he was injured you really noticed something lacking from the team...

Still remember DC's pass for DG to swivel-shot against Millwall.

This is a step backwards. Fine if we are aiming for mid table mediocrity.

Tommy Smith, please. Next you'll be wanting Luther Blissett to put his boots back on.

Yea maybe all these posters who want Cowie and Smith are right, maybe I was wrong..


While we are at it we could get Michael Brown, he is another average ageing player looking for one last pay day we could sign..

What a team we will have, just think with Cowie in the midfiled and smith on the wing, if we could get Brown we will be unbeatable!!!!!!!!

Loyalty etc is not really logical if you are building a team and want to will. Fans are fickle and if he scored 2 goals on his first game back then they will be cheering his name again.

The reality is more whether or not he fits in to our current set uprather than basing our view on the side he left a few years ago. Its a very different team and style now, and im not sure he suits any more.
