TWTD understands that Town are chasing Watford's Hungarian international striker Tamás Priskin. Blues boss Roy Keane is looking to add a big frontman to his squad before 2009/10 starts having recently failed to land Daryl Murphy from his former club Sunderland.

Priskin, 22, was born in Slovakia but has a Hungarian passport and has won 19 caps for his adopted country, scoring seven times.

He played with Slovak youth side FC Komárno before starting his professional career with Hungarian club Győri ETO.

In 2006 he moved to Watford, who were then in the Premier League, for an undisclosed fee, signing a four-year deal. Since then he has scored 16 goals in 58 starts and 24 sub appearances and also scored twice in four starts and one game from the bench during a one-month loan spell at Preston early in 2008.

The 6ft 1in tall striker is contracted to the Hornets until the summer of 2010 and is yet to sign an extension to his initial contract at Vicarage Road.

A fortnight ago, Watford boss Malky Mackay said he was confident Priskin, who scored 14 times in 36 starts and five sub appearances last season, would still be with his club at the start of 2009/10, however, it's our understanding that the Blues hope this won't be the case.
