Udinese impressed by Vydra

Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin is convinced on-loan striker Matej Vydra will have a bright future with the club when he returns from Watford.

Vydra, 20, has made just two appearances for his parent club back in 2010, but has not stopped scoring since his move to the Championship this season.

The striker's tally of 20 goals in 29 appearances, as well as eight assists, has alerted the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham to his abilities - something that is of no surprise to Guidolin.

"I expected him to do so well in England," Guidolin said. "I didn't want him to leave, as I like him and wanted him to come to Udine (following previous loan spell with Club Brugge)."

Unfortunately for Guidolin, Udinese's patrons, the Pozzo family, also own Watford and have used the English club as somewhere to nurture young talent such as Vydra.

"The club decided to send him out on loan and that's fair enough, considering he is only 20 years old," Guidolin added.

Reports in January said Vydra would be making his move to Watford permanent but Guidolin's latest comments suggest Udinese are keen on bringing the player back to Italy.
