Jerome Sinclair: Watford striker departs

Watford striker Jerome Sinclair believes he made the right choice to leave Liverpool in the summer, despite rumours that he will be loaned out.

Sinclair netted his first goal for the Hornets in their 2-0 FA Cup win against Burton Albion over the weekend, and is happy that he made the switch from Anfield in order to progress with his career.

“To me, it was an exciting opportunity to further my career at a club that’s growing,” Sinclair said.

“I played here in an FA Youth Cup tie three years ago, and one side of the ground was missing – so you can see how much the club has progressed.

“We’re trying to cement our place in the Premier League and kick on towards those European places. It is very important for the young players here to see there is a pathway to the first team.”

Sinclair arrived for £4million in the summer but, with a whole host of Championship clubs sniffing around, Watford boss Walter Mazzarri has not ruled out a potential loan move.

“We will see because Jerome is a very young player that needs to play of course as much as possible,” Mazzarri said.

“He’s a player that is very interesting with great potential but we want to keep perfoming the best possible way in the Premier League while playing with young players.

“It’s not easy, as I said the January transfer market is very difficult but we need to understand what’s going to happen in the transfer market with what players are coming in and going out.”
