West Brom boss Valerien Ismael admits he can't count on Matheus Pereira.
Pereira is a loan target for Watford after Ismael claimed the playmaker is "not committed" to representing the club in the Championship.
Pereira hit back angrily at Ismael's words and remains very keen to leave, with Saudi club Al Hilal prepared to offer him a huge pay rise if they can agree terms with West Brom.
Yet He would also welcome a return to the Premier League and Watford, who were promoted to the top flight last season, are thought to admire him.
It is unlikely West Brom would agree to a loan with no strings attached, says the Daily Mail.
