Skysports.com understands that Watford have expressed an interest in Stoke striker Richard Cresswell.

The 31-year-old's future has been cast into doubt following the Potters' signing of Turkish ace Tuncay Sanli.

With Stoke already well-stocked in the attacking department, departures now appear to be inevitable.

Much-travelled Cresswell could, therefore, find himself on the move once more.

He did feature on a regular basis under Tony Pulis last season, as Stoke made an impressive start to life in the Premier League, but he was often asked to play out of position in a wider role.

It remains to be seen whether he would be willing to take the step down into the Championship to join Watford.

The Hornets are in the market for a new forward after selling Tommy Smith to Portsmouth.
