Loach, who was called up to the England squad and named on the bench for last week's friendly against Hungary, is regarded as one of the best young keepers in the country after impressing at Vicarage Road over the last few seasons.

Manchester City, Fulham and Celtic, who are all thought to be in the market for a goalkeeper, are all believed to be keeping tabs on Loach's situation.

Big-spending City could make a move for Loach should Shay Given opt to leave Eastlands after losing his No.1 berth to Joe Hart.

Loach is also thought to be on Fulham's shortlist as they ponder replacements for Arsenal target Mark Schwarzer.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon is looking to land a new goalkeeper after losing Artur Boruc to Fiorentina and Loach is believed to be on his radar.

Watford are reluctant to lose the highly-rated custodian, but they could face a fight to keep him if any of the interested clubs firm up their interest before the close of the transfer window.
