Stuart Gray will be monitoring developments in the coming days after loanees Lewis McGugan and Royston Drenthe returned to their parent clubs.
Watford have indicated that they will be willing to consider offers for McGugan while Gray has made no secret of the fact that he would like to get the player back at Hillsborough. However, any move by Wednesday would be a loan extension rather than a transfer and that could leave the door open for other interested clubs to seal a permanent deal.
Gray says McGugan is now having discussions with Watford and considering his options for the future.
The head coach says he also thought he had agreed an extension to Drenthe’s loan but Reading, under new boss Steve Clarke, have now called the player back and are in talks with Drenthe about his future.
This comes after his loan spell ended a game earlier than expected when he missed our match at Wigan on Tuesday due to “personal reasons”. Reports then emerged that Drenthe could be on his way to play in China and he is now having talks with his parent club.
