Ken Sema arrived at Watford from Östersunds FK in 2018 and went on to make 22 appearances in all competitions in his debut season in England.
Last summer, the Sweden international was allowed to join Udinese on a season-long loan deal.
His temporary deal with the Serie A side is until June 30th and it’s unclear if the 26-year-old will continue with Udinese beyond his current deal, if the 2019/20 season needs more time to be completed.
The sport in Italy has been suspended due to the global health crisis and there’s been talk of resuming the league in a month’s time. If that happens, the campaign can’t finish before the end of June.
Watford and Udinese are owned by the Pozzo family and having same owners at both clubs should make it easier to sort out Sema’s contract, if he has to continue in Italy beyond June.
“If the championship starts again, we will see whether to extend the contract until the end of the season or what to do,” he to Fotboll Skanalen.
“However, the owners of the two teams are the same. I believe that it will be smooth and I hope that there will be an agreement that everyone is happy with and open to. Right now, it’s all about whether the league will be played or not. When you know it, you get to see how it is.”
Sema’s contract at Vicarage Road lasts until 2023, but he refused to talk about what will happen to his future beyond this season.
“Yeah, we’ll see what [happens],” said Sema.
