Watford head coach Gianfranco Zola refuses to comment on Udinese striker Alex Geijo
1:18pm Tuesday 7th August 2012 in Sport
Gianfranco Zola has refused to comment on whether Udinese striker Alex Geijo is joining the club but has indicated "two or three" new faces may arrive this summer.
Swiss striker Geijo, 30, heads a list of transfer targets to be linked with the club and the player seemed to confirm he was moving to the Hertfordshire club on his twitter account at the weekend.
A translation of his tweet read: "Well then, I'm going to English club Watford on loan from Udinese for a year. On Monday I will travel to London. Wanting to start now."
Despite this clear indication from the striker, Zola refused to comment on the striker, or other individual transfer targets, but did state that more players will be coming through the doors.
He said: "There will certainly be one or two players, maybe three, who will be joining us to try and strengthen the team a little bit more, that’s for sure.
"We will see. I don’t know which ones but there will be maybe two or three players to strengthen the team.
"Saying that, I am very pleased with the others, and I’m sure we can do very good things."
Since the takeover by the Pozzo family, Watford have had access to Udinese's vast scouting network, as well as an advantageous partnership with the Pozzos' other clubs Udinese and Granada.
So far the Hornets have benefited from the relationship with the two clubs by signing five players on season-long loans, with Geijo expected to be the sixth.
Another player the Hornets are interested in is QPR striker DJ Campbell but we understand claims he was set to sign yesterday are premature.
