Tom Cleverley of Watford looks dejected

By Harvey Byrne

Key Watford midfielder Tom Cleverley will miss his side’s clash against Everton due to the terms of his original loan deal, according to a reliable journalist.

The 27-year-old central midfielder departed the Toffees in January for the Hornets and he has established himself as an important member of the team, starting all but one of their Premier League matches since joining.

It has also been reported by Sky Sports that the 13-time capped England international has agreed a five year deal at the club for an undisclosed fee, which is set to activate on July 1.

However, he is now set to miss his side’s clash against Everton with injury expert Ben Dinnery reporting on his personal Twitter account that Cleverley cannot feature against the Toffees due to terms of his loan.

Watford are currently going through a bad spell in the Premier League with four defeats and just one goal scored from their last five matches and the loss of a first teamer will come as a blow to the side.
