Claudio wishes Watford well

Claudio Ranieri believes Watford can still beat the drop. 

The Italian was axed by the Hornets yesterday after overseeing 10 defeats in 13 Premier League games following his appointment last October. 

But Ranieri, who has been succeeded by Roy Hodgson, has wished his former side well as they bid to remain in the top flight.  

He said: "I can only say good luck to everybody. To Watford, the fans, the board, everyone. 

"That is football. But I believe with new players, Watford can be safe and also [arriving] is a fantastic manager. I wish all the best."

Since the January transfer window opened for business, the relegation-haunted Hornets have signed Hassane Kamara from Nice, Samir from Udinese and Edo Kayembe from Eupen. 

They have also completed a deal for Maduka Okoye but the Nigeria keeper has been loaned back to Sparta Rotterdam for the rest of the season. 

Eriksen training with Ajax

Christian Eriksen is training with Ajax to build up his fitness as he seeks a new club. 

The Danish midfielder, 29, began his senior career with the Dutch giants, enjoying five years there before joining Tottenham in 2013. 

And he has linked up their reserve side, managed by former Everton defender John Heitinga, after his contract was cancelled by Inter Milan last month. 

Eriksen, who suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, has been strongly linked with a move to Brentford. 

Martial moves on

Manchester United ace Anthony Martial will spend the rest of the season on loan at Sevilla, subject to a medical. 

The Frenchman, 26, has been desperate to get away from Old Trafford after being little more than a bit-part player this term.

And LaLiga outfit Sevilla have finally landed their man after tracking him for a number of months. 

Martial, who joined United from Monaco for £36million in September 2015, is believed to have agreed a pay cut to smooth his departure. 

Knee op ends Hagi's season

Rangers winger Ianis Hagi will miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery. 

The Romanian was injured during his side's 4-0 Scottish Cup win over Stirling Albion last Friday.

And Gers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst has revealed Hagi, 23, went under the knife in London yesterday. 

He said: ​​​​​​"We assessed him and he needed an operation yesterday. We won't have Ianis for the season so that's a big blow for all of us and obviously a huge disappointment for him. 

"I spoke to him this morning, he's in a good place. He's of course not happy that he had the injury and needed surgery but he's quite focused now and positive for his recovery."
