Watford pull out of deal for Jack Rodwell

Free agent Jack Rodwell is attracting fresh foreign transfer interest.

The Sun says he passed a medical at Watford before a move broke down - and now has alternative clubs looking to reignite his career.

The 27-year-old had an agreement in place to be part of Javi Gracia's squad for the Premier League season ahead after training at Vicarage Road this summer.

But the move collapsed when Abdoulaye Doucoure committed himself to the club with a new five-year deal to ensure Gracia was covered in central midfield.

Rodwell has been training with Everton and could earn a contract at the club he left in 2012, although there are other top-flight clubs monitoring his situation.

FC Midtjylland in Denmark have shown interest in Rodwell, as have German club St Pauli.
