Watford player says 'no deal', after club confirm transfer

Watford defender Miguel Layun spent this season, on loan, at Porto, who had the option to sign the player permanently.

Yesterday, Porto confirmed through their official newsletter 'Dragões Diário' (via O Jogothey've completed a permanent deal for the player. It was reported Porto had agreed a fee of  £4.5m for Layun with Watford.

Porto released a statement: "The Mexican was on loan from Watford, but our club reached an agreement with the English club. If Layún was already a player in the style of Porto, now he will have a contract with Porto."

Things could get a bit tricky for Porto, if you ask the player, who confirmed, last night, that he is yet to sign a contract with the Portuguese side.

Layun told Mexican newspaper Record(via Portuguese website Record):"Right now I'm waiting for my agent news. Nobody has told me yet it's official. For now, I have not signed anything. I am calm, I love what I do. There are rumors that I have already signed for FC Porto, but nothing has materialized."

Record insist Layun will be tied to Porto until 2020, and it's only a matter of time, but the player's comment makes you think something is going behind the scene. There is a chance the player is forcing the club to pay him higher wages, and we should wait and see, if Porto can agree a deal with the player.
