WalesEuro 2016 starlet Hal Robson-Kanu will not be coming to Vicarage Road this summer after Watford confirmed that they are not interested in signing the striker.

Hornets intend to keep star players

Watford’s forward line is already pretty formidable as it it, with new signings Isaac Success and Jerome Sinclair brought in this summer to join captain Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo up top.

The Hornets have already made it clear this summer that they aren’t willing to sell any of their star players, after Deeney signed a new long-term deal and a record-breaking deal from China was turned down for Ighalo.

However, Robson-Kanu has been in high demand after his stunning performances against some of the world’s best players.

The forward scored against Slovakia and also against Belgium, a goal which will be talked about for many-a-year, as Wales made it to the semi-finals for the first time in their history.

Striker could sign a lucrative deal

The forward came through the youth ranks at Arsenal before moving to Reading in 2004, where he competed for another three years in the youth ranks there.

His Reading debut came in 2007, and he never looked back for the next nine years, with two loan spells with Southend United and Swindon Town sandwiched in the middle.

He made 198 appearances for the Royals, scoring 24 goals in that time, but was released by his former club after choosing to run down his contract.

Robson-Kanu has made 35 appearances for Wales, and his recent showings has seen him linked with a big money move to Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan.
