Domingos Quina is assessing his options this summer, with chances at Watford now expected to be limited.

The Watford Observer understands that the midfielder was offered the chance to join Udinese earlier in the transfer window, but turned it down.

Bournemouth have also approached the Hornets directly about the possibility of signing the Portugal Under-21 international, while clubs in Spain and Portugal have also shown interest.

Quina's preference is to remain at Vicarage Road, where he feels he can play an important part in the Premier League campaign that began last weekend.

However assurances have not been given to the 21-year-old about his place in the squad leaving him considering a move away, which would likely be permanent rather than another loan.

There is still a chance that Quina will remain a Watford player come the end of the transfer window, but it is understood that the situation he currently finds himself in is not what he imagined after his return from a loan spell at Granada.

Shortly after his return, he told the Watford Observer he was expecting to play regularly, following conversations with people at the club.

Yet he was not included in the matchday squad for Saturday's opening day win over Aston Villa, with new signings Peter Etebo, Juraj Kucka and Imran Louza selected for midfield and substitute positions, as well as Tom Cleverley and Dan Gosling.
