While incomings were in short supply for Watford this season, there was no shortage of players returning to the club from loan deals.

No fewer than nine players headed back to Vicarage Road after spending last season out on loan, and one of them was Stefano Okaka.

The forward was at Udinese for the second half of last season, scoring six goals in 16 appearances for the Serie A side.

However, they weren’t interested in turning his move into a permanent one, and the striker was left looking elsewhere to get a move away from Watford.

Yesterday we covered a report that Besiktas were keen on his signature, with Sozcu saying they were looking at him amid their ongoing attempts to bolster their forward line this summer.

It seems they’ll face competition for his signature with Sky Italia reporting that Russian side Dynamo Moscow are also on his list of admirers.

They claim that Dinamo are showing ‘strong interest’ in the Watford man and are working on a loan deal with an obligation to buy at the end of it.

Indeed, it seems negotiations are quite advanced, with them saying that a meeting between Dinamo chiefs and Okaka’s brother, who’s also his agent, is planned for the next few hours as they try to get an agreement sorted with the Watford man.

There’s no suggestion as to whether Watford would let him go on loan, but it seems unlikely they would block a move for a man who hasn’t appeared for the club since December.
