Watford have managed to retain the service of a host of high-profile names this summer, including Andre Gray.
The striker hasn’t featured for the Hornets under Vladimir Ivic, with Watford managing to make a steady start to life back in the Championship without the 29-year-old.
Gray hasn’t been the subject of much serious transfer speculation, but there’s still a little bit of Premier League interest in the striker.

As per a report from the Express and Star, he and Watford teammate Troy Deeney have been sounded out as potential loan options for West Bromwich Albion.
The Premier League side are on the lookout for a striker, with Karlan Grant their preferred option. However, they’ve made little progress in recruiting the 23-year-old from Huddersfield Town, which has led to Bilic lining up potential alternatives.
That’s where Gray comes in.
He’s scored 14 times over three season for Watford in the Premier League, as well as netting nine goals for Burnley in the top-flight prior to his move South.
The former Brentford forward has hardly been prolific, but he’s shown enough to warrant minor interest from the Premier League.
It’s minor interest because Grant remains such a priority for West Brom this summer.
I sense there is still an optimism that agreement can be reached with Huddersfield. It will need to be an unusual package because, frankly, there is very little of Albion's budget left. But these are unusual times and there's still a deal to be done. #WBA

Steve Madeley reports today how there is still optimism the Huddersfield forward will make the move.
Like Gray, he’s not featured in the Championship this season and technically has one foot already out of the door at Huddersfield.
You feel that Gray won’t be on his way to West Brom if that deal materialises like the Baggies want it to.
