Andrews Wants to be Rescued from Watford Loan

Keith Andrews has issued a 'come and get me' plea, after stating his desire to bring an end to a disappointing loan spell at Watford.

Andrews is halfway through a season-long loan deal at Vicarage Road, but hasn't played for the Hornets since featuring in a 2-1 home defeat to Derby County on November 22.

The 34-year-old, whose contract at Bolton expires at the end of the season, has been placed on gardening leave by Slavisa Jokanovic, Watford's fourth manager of the campaign, and, with his future seemingly away from Macron Stadium, Andrews has admitted he would like to find a club that will give him the opportunity to play regular first-team football.

"I have not been playing or been in for the last few weeks," Andrews told Goals on Sunday.

"It is a little bit of an odd situation really. I suppose that I am on gardening leave to a degree over something that happened at the club that I cannot really speak about.

"But now that the window is open again, that loan situation can get changed so hopefully another club can take that loan on for the rest of the season. Hopefully another club will come to the rescue.

"I just want to play football and I am not just going to sit around somewhere for the sake of it. I have never made it difficult for any club I have been at.

"If they do not want me, or vice-versa, it is just one of those things. You only get one career, and I want to enjoy it and achieve as much as I can in it."

Andrews joined Bolton on a free transfer from West Bromwich Albion in the summer of 2012 and will leave the club on June 30, having scored four goals in 29 appearances.
