Cape Town - French midfielder Etienne Capoue has expressed his desire to remain at Watford where he feels he is making an impact.

The Hornets find themselves in sixth place on the Premier League standings after recording four wins and three draws from nine games this season.

Current head coach Marco Silva has built on the foundations laid by the club's owners over the past few years - despite having gone through a number of managers - and Capoue says that unless the club tell him to leave, he intends to continue to put his best foot forward for the ambitious side.

Capoue, who joined the Hertfordshire-based side from Tottenham Hotspur for a then-club-record £6.3 million in 2015, told Standard Sport: "I want to stay here. I have two more years and I feel good at the club.

"It is up to me. If I'm doing well on the pitch, I will stay here. If I'm not good and someone plays in my place, maybe they will put me out. This is football, but I want to remain at Watford.

"I have a very good relationship with the president (owner Gino Pozzo). They have put me in the best condition to show my football, I feel grateful.

"Of course I want to carry on this Watford adventure. There is a very good goal here, a big project here.

"They don't go anywhere for nothing, when they do something it is for a reason. I like it. I feel there is a structure. It is good to keep going forward."

Watford boss Silva is fan of the former Toulouse man and added: "When Capoue plays, he is a different player and brings a different style.

"He can play as a number eight or behind the striker. Every time I call him to play, he gives a good answer to me."
