Cucho Hernández has not yet made an appearance for Watford after arriving at Vicarage Road from Granada in 2017. 

The 21-year-old has spent the last three seasons away on loan at SD Huesca and Mallorca due to his failure to obtain a work permit to play in England. 

The same issue made him ineligible to represent the Championship club this season, which is why Vladimir Ivić’s side allowed him to join Getafe on a temporary deal in August.

The striker has given an interview to Colombian outlet Gol Caracol, and was asked his opinion on being sent out on loan over the past few years. 

“In the end, a player would like to be in one place, settle down, know that you are going to be in one place for two or three years,” he said.

“I have been out on loan, but I am not complaining. Watford have behaved in the best way. I give everything, one hundred percent, to the club which I represent [now].”

Hernández’s current deal with the English club runs until 2021 and he can leave the Hornets as a free agent next summer. 

When quizzed if he would prefer to sign for a club, including Watford, that gives him long-term stability, the South American said: “I don’t know, the truth is that now the only thing I know is that I’m at Getafe and I want to have a good year.

“Obviously I would like to be in a settled place and know that I will be there for a long time and I will not move much. I hope, I hope, but I’m going to give everything wherever I play.”

Hernández has made four La Liga appearances for Getafe this season and has registered two assists in the process.
