Watford are swooping for Leicester City winger Lloyd Dyer.

The Leicester Mercury says the 31-year-old was offered a new one-year contract by City but he has rejected it as he wants more long-term security.

Dyer, who is officially out of contract at the end of next month, had stated he wanted to finish his career with City having spent the last six years at the King Power Stadium, but was unhappy with being offered just one more year.

He has been considering offers from several clubs, including one from overseas, and has been offered a three-year deal by the Hornets.
