Watford are still planning to file paperwork registering Pape Gueye as their player in July, the Watford Observer understands.

The French midfielder, who is currently with Le Havre, has a pre-contract agreement signed with the Hornets and is due to join the club on July 1.

However, the 21-year-old has now said he does not want to play at Vicarage Road and released a statement via L'Equipe on Sunday evening claiming he had trusted a person who "advised him badly" and that he would be ending "all contractual links" with Watford. 

Nevertheless, it is understood that the Hornets believe the contract they have with the player is watertight and they are planning to file the registration documents at the start of next month. 

On April 29 of this year, the club announced the signing of the player, stating: "an official agreement has already been lodged with all relevant authorities."

However, Gueye's lawyer Pierre-Henri Bovis told the Watford Observer at the same time that nothing was "fixed". 

Gueye's statement reads: "For me, the future is still uncertain. My fault in this story is to have trusted a person who advised me badly. I warn my colleagues about the abuses they could be subject to regarding contract signatures. I am not the first and unfortunately I will not be the last. I wanted to denounce the circumstances which surrounded the signature of a contract with Watford and what I consider to be irregularities directly with their representatives. After numerous dicussions, I note to this day that no administrative process concerning me has really been undertaken. Consequently, and considering that the contract has not yet taken effect, I take note of the end of all contractual link with the club of Watford."
