Watford boss Malky Mackay insists signing Heidar Helguson permanently is not on his agenda after bringing him back on loan.

The striker is back for a third spell at Vicarage Road after arriving back from Queens Park Rangers having spent the first half of the season with Mackay's men.

The Icelander is surplus to requirements at Loftus Road, fuelling speculation of a permanent move to Watford at the end of the season.

However, with financial difficulties restricting Mackay in the transfer market of late, the Scot is just pleased to have resigned Helguson for the time being.

"He's a good addition and I'm delighted to have acquired him for the rest of the campaign," Mackay said.

"Right now I'm concentrating on what's happening between now and the end of the season."

The 32-year-old is one of a trio of loan re-signings after Manchester United youngster Tom Cleverly has his loan extended along with Arsenal prodigy Henri Lansbury.

Mackay added: "The focus was on getting Heidar, Henri Lansbury and Tom Cleverley in until the end of the season."

Meanwhile, Watford have confirmed the permanent signing of Stephen McGinn from St Mirren for a six-figure sum after the midfielder passed a medical.

The 21-year-old had become a key player for the Buddies having made his debut in 2007 after progressing through the club's youth ranks.
