Ex-Leicester, Southampton boss Puel on Watford shortlist to replace Pearson

Former Southampton and Leicester City boss Claude Puel could take over at Watford.

The Hornets are quickly drawing up a shortlist to replace Nigel Pearson, who was sensationally fired with two league games remaining this season.

Watford could be relegated depending on their and other team's results in the final games of the season.

And the Daily Mail reports St. Etienne manager Puel is on the club's shortlist.

Watford wanted no.2 Craig Shakespeare in charge until the season concluded, but he has left with Pearson after staying loyal to his manager.

Hayden Mullins and Graham Stack will be in interim charge.
