Watford are set to finalise the loan deal of Domingos Quina to Spanish side Granada according to The Athletic’s Adam Leventhal.
Quina has struggled for consistent game time with the Hornets, since signing for the club from West Ham back in 2018. He has made 15 appearances in all competitions this term for Xisco Munoz’s side.
The midfielder has been restricted to just eight starts in this year’s league campaign, as the Hornets look to win promotion back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.
The 21-year-old made his Watford debut against Reading in the EFL Cup in 2018, but has found regular minutes in the Watford first-team a tough ask in recent seasons.
But it seems as though his short-term future lies elsewhere, with Quina set to undergo a medical with Granada, which will see him sign for the Spanish side on loan until the conclusion of the 2020/21 season.
Granada are currently sat seventh in the LaLiga table after their opening 21 matches, and he’ll be hoping he can make a positive impact with them, as they look to finish in the European qualification places this term.
Watford are sat fourth in the Championship table, and will be keen to put together a positive run of results from now until the end of the season under the management of Xisco Munoz.
The Hornets are set to return to action on Monday evening, when they host London rivals QPR at Vicarage Road, as they look to keep the pressure up on their promotion rivals in the Championship with a positive result.

I’m not too sure this is the right decision.
Quina has found regular game time hard to come by this season, and I don’t necessarily think that’s all his fault. I certainly think he’s good enough to be playing regularly in the Championship, and the Hornets may regret sending him out on loan for the remainder of this year’s campaign.
You only have to look at the reaction on social media to this reported move, and it’s certainly one that has raised concern amongst the Vicarage Road faithful on Deadline Day.
