Roy can understand the reasoning, but believes it is unnecessary.
He explained to Le Phoceen: "I don't think the Premier League is a special market, even if there is more money than elsewhere. After, we can say that there are two markets: that of English players, or foreigners already installed in the championship which are very expensive, and then there are those who come from abroad who are a little less.
"The English consider that their championship is specific and they want to know if the player is able to adapt to it. But, if tomorrow I propose a French player to the Watford board, I don't see the point of going through a transfer facilitator.
"Afterwards, OM certainly have identified the need to feel compelled to call on someone."
