Etienne Capoue will stay in England after Watford and Valencia were unable to come to an agreement over the midfielder.

Valencia boss Javi Gracia was keen to link up with Capoue again at his new club, but a disagreement on price meant it was not possible for the move to go ahead.

While the player was unable to seal a move away during the international transfer window, the domestic window remains open until October 16 and could see Capoue move to a Premier League club, should there be sufficient interest.

The club have already confirmed that the player has not been included in their squad this season after he handed in a transfer request, so the chances of him being reintegrated into the team look slim for now, but it is also not impossible that should a deal not be forthcoming, he plays for a move in the January transfer window, especially with news of Tom Dele-Bashiru's injury emerging this afternoon.

Meanwhile Ismaila Sarr does look set to stay for the rest of the season.

Watford Observer:

The Hornets rejected advances from Manchester United earlier today and, while United could still bring the player in during the domestic window, it is understood that they wanted to have the player in situ in time to register him for Champions League football before tomorrow's deadline.

The Red Devils have also tied up deals for Edinson Cavani and Amad Diallo this evening, so it remains to be seen whether or not their interest in Sarr remains after completing those signings.
