Watford owned Jaime Alvarado has been out on loan in Spain since 2017.

Real Valladolid signed him on a temporary deal during the 2017/18 season and third division Spanish side Hércules CF took him on loan last season. He extend his temporary stay with them until the end of this campaign.

The 20-year-old has been restricted to only six appearances this season and is currently with Colombia’s U23 side, playing a friendly tie as the South American nation prepare for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Spanish newspaper AS claims Hércules’ players returned to training yesterday after a week’s vacation. Alvarado was the only player missing from the group. 

It’s claimed that Alvarado may not return to the Spanish side as Hércules are planning to terminate his loan deal. AS doesn’t provide information as to why they are considering ending their association with the midfielder.

If the player returns to Vicarage Road, then Watford will have to either accommodate him in their U23 side or find another club in the winter market.
