The Hornets are understood to have allowed a couple of their squad members to sample life in Iceland in time for the start of the new domestic season, with Heidar Helguson helping to set up the loan moves for his team-mates.
"I was absolutely amazed when I heard it," scoffed Shaw on Watford's official website. "It's obviously not true and we'd really like to know who starts stories like these."
Yet Leiftur/Dalvik have already announced the swoop on their official website, and their chairman Runar Gudlaugsson has told planetfootball.com that two players will arrive in May, and they are extremely likely to be Fisken and Doyley.
"Watford have agreed to loan Leitfur/Dalvik two players for next season," the Icelanders revealed in a statement.
"The players are both around 20 years old, and they should be a major boost for us.
"One of the players is a defender, the other is a defensive midfielder.
"These loan deals are part of an agreement between the clubs, which started two years ago, when Leiftur/Dalvik sent two young players on trial to Watford.
"Everyone knows our former star Heidar Helguson (pictured), who plays for Watford, and he is the middle man in the deal."
It would appear that Watford need updating on the situation, particularly regarding their long-term agreement with the tiny club.
"We have an agreement with Watford about two players coming to our club on loan," a separate statement read.
"Gary Fisken and Lloyd Doyley are the players who are most likely to come to Leiftur/Dalvik.
"Doyley has played 17 games for Watford's first team, but had an injury.
"The players are expected to come to Iceland in April."
