Danny Rose is set to leave Watford this month after only half a season with the club.

The former Tottenham Hotspur left-back was signed as a free agent in the summer and has made nine appearances in all competitions since.

However, following the arrival of new signing Hassane Kamara, and with other defenders set to join this month, he is now expected to depart, with space needed in the squad.

Udinese defender Samir and KAS Eupen midfielder Edo Kayembe are both expected to be announced in the coming days, while Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida is also a target, with talks ongoing over his possible arrival.

Rose quickly fell down the pecking order under head coach Claudio Ranieri, who admitted he was concerned by the fitness of the 31-year old.

The Italian said he wanted to help Rose rediscover his form, but ultimately was not able to do so, with Adam Masina cementing his place as first choice left-back, despite making several mistakes.

"I remember when he played for Tottenham and when he played for the national team. I need this Danny," said Ranieri last month.

"He’s a champion, he knows very well he’s not ready enough and he has to push more.

"I see him during the training sessions he tries to push, to stay always working hard and I hope he can achieve his higher level than before.

"I think it’s fitness because when he came, he was down on fitness. He has now improved a lot, but needs to improve more.

"It's difficult to say how long it will take. Very difficult."
