Watford News: Capoue only wants to stay; 16yo Ryan Cassidy amazes coaching staff

Etienne Capoue says he's happy at Watford.

The midfielder turned down interest from Torino and West Ham last month.

"I was focused on staying at Watford - 100 per cent. And even if there was no change [in managers] I was still focused on Watford," Capoue said.

"I read the links and I said I want to stay in Watford.

"I want to stay here. I have two more years and I feel good at the club."

Meanwhile, Watford management are excited by 16 year-old striker Ryan Cassidy.

The Irish kid has netted four goals in his first two U23 games, including a hat-trick on his debut at Bristol City.

"Ryan's been doing well for the 18s all season. He's stepped up and been excellent for us, he's done really well," U23 coach Hayden Mullins told the Hertfordshire Mercury.

"But he's still got a long way to go in terms of his development, where he is going, where he wants to go and where we'd like him to go as a player.

"We need to manage him and make sure he does all the things right every day. You can't get carried away with what he's done, but on the flip side enjoy it."
