Watford have confirmed they are hoping to play a couple of pre-season games over the weekend of July 25 to the 27th.

We understand they are seeking to arrange matches in Scotland for that weekend but the Golden Boys refused to comment on whether that was the case.

A Watford fan on Twitter claimed supporters in Austria, where the club are on a training camp, were told a double header with Edinburgh-based duo Hibernian and Hearts has been arranged but again the club refused to comment.
