A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Blackburn have leapfrogged Watford to become favourites to sign Douglas on a season-long loan.

Proven performer Douglas is set to be playing at a higher level, albeit one in which he will need to drop down from the Premier League.

But Douglas is on relatively high wages and, in the current climate, neither Watford or Blackburn are prepared to commit to a significant transfer fee.
