Reims president Caillot admits Watford, Newcastle target Oudin can leave

Reims president Jean-Pierre Caillot has announced they're willing to listen to offers for Remi Oudin.

Watford and Newcastle United are interested in the attacker, who has been likened to former Arsenal star Robin van Persie. Indeed, Watford have already made a £7 million offer for the player.

Caillot has since stated, "For the moment, the only player who clearly has a good exit because we gave him our word at the beginning of the year, is Remi Oudin. For him, considering all the approaches that are made by clubs from everywhere, I think it may be the right time to go because sometimes, to do the year more, it's never good neither for the player nor for us.

"So we will see, we will not sell him off, he will leave if he has a project that suits him and obviously Stade de Reims will insist on the right terms."
