Former Huddersfield Town midfielder Etienne Camara could be set for a quick return to the Championship, according to reports in Italy.

The youngster only left the John Smith's Stadium in the summer, signing for Udinese in a deal thought to be worth around PS2m. With only a year left on his contract, and the defensive midfielder slipping down the pecking order under Neil Warnock, the club cashed in on the 20-year-old after three years in West Yorkshire.

However, Watford could be set to bring him back to English football, with the January deal mooted by TuttoMercatoWeb. The Hornets are owned by Gino Pozzo, the son of Udinese owner Giampaolo Pozzo, who also used to run Watford before passing it on.

Watford have had a mixed start to the season, sitting in 13th place currently and having played out a goalless draw with Huddersfield earlier this month.

Camara is yet to make a Serie A start for Udinese, although he has been an unused substitute on 12 occasions, and his only appearance to date came late on in an Italian Cup defeat to Cagliari. He made 20 appearances for the Terriers last season, but didn't start a game after the 4-0 defeat to Burnley in February.

In fact, he played just 10 minutes of football after the game, and wasn't included on the bench for the final eight games.

Should he make the switch to Watford then he won't have long to wait before facing Hudderfield, with Darren Moore'e side due at Vicarage Road for the Championship game on February 24.
