Udinese loanee Karnezis wants permanent Watford move

A lot has changed for Orestis Karnezis in the last month.

The Greek goalkeeper, who joined Watford on loan from Udinese last month, has gone from a nightmare debut against Everton, to keeping Heurelho Gomes out of the starting line-up on Saturday against, ironically, the Toffees.

And now the 32-year-old wants to stay at Vicarage Road for the long-term.

"I came on loan here at the last moment from Udinese and I would like to stay and continue with Watford," Karnezis explained.

"In football you never know and I am happy here and also happy I am playing in the games and want to continue doing so.

"Football has taught me not to make plans and don't make dreams, but of course dreaming is a good thing.

"You must keep calm and live in the present and do your best. In the future we will see what will happen."
