Watford striker Theo Robinson does not know where his future lies but says the most important thing is that he plays first team football next season.

The 20-year-old had a successful loan spell at Hereford last year - scoring 16 times - and averaged one goal in every three games at Southend in the second half of this campaign.

But the Birmingham-born striker will struggle to hold down a starting place at Vicarage Road, which could see him leave the Hornets this summer in the search for first team football.

“It’s too early to know what’s going to happen and I certainly don’t know at this stage,” Robinson told the Essex Echo.

“The most important thing to me is just that I’m playing first team football again. Going to Southend gave me another taste of that, which I enjoyed, but I need to speak to Watford and also my agent to see what they have in mind for me.”

Robinson has two years left on his contract but it is likely Brendan Rodgers will look to bring in his own strikers during his first summer transfer window at Watford.

Southend boss Steve Tilson has already expressed his desire for Robinson to return to Roots Hall next season and the striker himself has not ruled out the possibility.

“I really enjoyed my time with Southend,” he said.

“I scored seven goals and managed to get the one in three games I was hoping for. It would have been nice to score in my last game and I’m still disappointed I didn’t do that against Cheltenham.

“It was a good loan spell though and the team did well too.

“I’d be quite happy to go back but I’m really not sure what will happen.”
