Watford are in talks with Serbian Vladimir Ivic as the 43-year-old has been identified as the potential next manager of the club.

Watford are in talks with Vladimir Ivic as they look to appoint a new manager soon enough.

The Hornets suffered a disappointing Premier League campaign where they finished 19th and eventually got relegated.

Prior to the end of their campaign, Watford already sacked ex-manager Nigel Pearson with two games remaining at the time.

It now appears Serbian Vladimir could be next in line to take over at the Vicarage Road.

The 43-year-old left Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv as a free agent after winning consecutive titles in his stint.

The Daily Mail report that Watford are in advanced talks with the Serbian and are convinced he can lead them back to the Premier League.

Vladimir is also said to be on decent wages and would not cost the Hornets much in terms of compensation.

Chris Hughton and ex-Leicester boss Claude Puel have also showed interest in the vacancy.
