Marco Silva says everyone at Watford is happy with Andre Carrillo and that the on-loan Benfica winger is enjoying playing for the club - but admits he doesn't know whether owner Gino Pozzo will get the chequebook out to keep the Peruvian at Vicarage Road.

Carrillo divided opinion in his opening months with the Hornets but has found form more recently, putting in impressive displays despite disappointing defeats, and netting twice against Swansea and Bristol City.

Silva said last month that given the choice, he would sign the 26-year-old who he has linked up again with at Vicarage Road, two years after the pair spent a season working together at Portuguese side Sporting.

There had been reports the Hornets were working to conclude a permanent deal during the January window, but the Watford Observer understands this will be left until the summer, if it does go through.

This week Silva added: "We'll see what we can do. All I can say is everybody in the club is happy with him.

"But after that, it's a matter of business, and it's for our owner to think about what the best solution is for us as a club.

"Carrillo's enjoying it; I know he can do more and I know he can improve more. We can develop the player.

"It's important for me because he's a player I know and a player I told the club to sign. Of course, he's helping the team I think and it's my job to make him better.

"At the end of the season we'll see what the decision is. We have the option and we'll see after what the best solution is.

"It's a matter of business and the club will decide."
