Having sold Beto to Everton, Udinese needed a striker to replace him, and decided that Keinan Davis, who had just spent the season on loan at Watford, was the man to do that.

Unfortunately for everyone involved, the player injured himself rather quickly, and it was claimed that he wasn’t in good shape when he arrived.

The 25-year-old has yet to play for his new club, who paid €2.3m for him, and Sport Face in Italy are now referring to the former Watford loanee as a ‘mysterious object’.

He is still trying to ‘overcome a calf injury’ that he picked up soon after arriving, and there is clearly some frustration at the situation.

His situation remains a ‘real mystery’, and clearly there is a need for him to make an appearance sooner rather than later, with Udinese currently languishing in 16th in the table.

When that will happen, no one really knows, but after his seven goals and two assists in 34 games for Watford last season, there was clearly hope he would have played by now.

Bought from Aston Villa, the 25-year-old had made 86 appearances for his former club, scoring six goals and providing seven assists.
