​Watford nearing deal for St. Mirren youngster McGrath

Watford are moving ahead with their summer transfer plans, as they close in on a ninth new signing.

The Hornets are determined to stay in the Premier League after earning promotion through the Championship.

According to The Sun, St Mirren's James McGrath is the latest player catching the eye of Watford.

They were hoping to sign Lewis Ferguson from Aberdeen, but the rejection of two bids may mean they turn their attention to McGrath instead.

The 24-year-old impressed last season, scoring 17 goals from midfield for St Mirren.
