Ghana winger Christian Atsu looks set to join Championship side, Watford, on loan.

Atsu’s future has been hanging in the balance after the 28-year-old was told by Newcastle head coach, Steve Bruce that he had to find a new club last month.

Celtic and Nottingham Forrest expressed interest in signing the Ghanaian but Watford are reported to have the most concrete interest.

Christian Atsu joined The Magpies in 2016 and went to make 121 appearances for the tyne-wear club scoring eight and assisting ten goals.

Officials of the Hornets have already held talks with their counterparts on Tyneside over a possible loan move for Atsu.

Watford are desperate to sign a winger as Gerard Deulofeu nears a move to Udinese.
