West Bromwich Albion midfielder George Thorne is on his way to Watford this week.

The Express & Star says Thorne is set to join Watford on loan later this week - with a view to remaining at Vicarage Road until the New Year.

The Albion midfielder has been recovering from a ruptured cruciate, sustained in the Baggies game at Everton way back in January.

He has been undergoing rehabilitation and, following Monday's under-21 fixture against Reading and a series of practice games, is now nearing full-match fitness.
