Watford live updates
Wigan and Watford are both trying to sign Chelsea's England Under-21 international midfielder on loan, according to the Daily Mirror. The youngster already has a year's experience in the Championship, after spending last season at Vicarage Road.
Watford's Ikechi Anya has won his first Scotland call-up after being named in Gordon Strachan's squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Belgium and Macedonia next month.
The Glasgow-born player can play full-back or wide midfield. Meanwhile, Leeds forward Ross McCormack has secured a recall.
Derby have verbally agreed a one-year contract with experienced midfielder John Eustace.
Eustace, a former Rams loanee, is a free agent after leaving Watford and he is expected to put pen to paper on the deal this week.
