Watford loan star Chris Eagles would consider staying at Vicarage Road.Watford loan star Chris Eagles has confessed that he would like to remain at the club next season, if he cannot make an impact at Manchester United.
Eagles is considered a major talent at United, who originally signed him from Watford, and they have loaned him back to his former club to gain first team experience.
The winger has flourished of late at Vicarage Road - with new manager Adrian Boothroyd helping the player to show his ability.
"I've loved every minute of it," Eagles told the club's official site.
"To come and play first-team football has been good for me - I feel I've learned a lot about myself and the game which can only be good for my development.
"I'd definitely think about coming back, but if I've got a chance to be involved in the Man Utd first team, I think anyone would take that up.
"If the boss comes to me and says I need another loan spell out and Watford want me, then we'll see what happens.
"I've made a lot of new friends down here - I knew some of the lads from my time here before but I know some of the older lads better now, like Neil Cox and Sean Dyche.
"Their experience has rubbed off on me and hopefully will help me to improve my game."
Eagles also paid testament to manager Boothroyd, who helped him flourish after taking over midway through his loan spell.
"The gaffer's been great for me," added Eagles.
"He knows what my strengths are and I've been able to play the way I like to play, getting on the ball and making things happen.
"He'll be a top manager - people don't realise how knowledgeable and talented he is but he knows the game and will do great things at Watford."
