Watford boss Walter Mazzarri has ruled out the prospect of bringing back Steven Berghuis early from his loan at Feyenoord.

The Dutch international winger is on a season-long loan but the Hornets have a recall option which would allow them to bring him back and help aid their squad which has been weakened by injuries.

But Mazzarri insists this is not going to happen and also underlined it was Berghuis' decision to seek a loan move last summer.

The Watford boss said: “If there was the possibility for Berghuis to come back here then I think they would have told me.

"When I came here at the beginning it was Berghuis that wanted to go on loan so I didn’t even have a lot of time to evaluate the player."
