Barcelona youngster Jean-Clair Todibo is understood to have ruled out a loan move to Watford.

Todibo joined Barcelona in the January transfer window from French outfit Toulouse and the 19-year-old managed two La Liga appearances for the Catalan giants after making the move to Camp Nou.

Barca want to keep Todibo with their squad for pre-season but may be open to sending the defensive midfielder out on loan for the 2019/20 campaign in order for Todibo to gain more first team experience.

Watford officials are believed to have travelled to Barcelona to discuss the possibility of signing Todibo on loan, but the France youth international doesn’t want to move to England and as such has ruled out joining Watford on a temporary deal.
