WATFORD were on the verge of appointing Nigel Gibbs to their coaching staff when the 49-year-old accepted a position at Millwall instead.

NewsAtDen understands that Ian Holloway persuaded Gibbs to join his backroom team despite the Hornets wanting him to return to Vicarage Road.

Gibbs spent his entire playing daysat Watford and began his coaching career there too, bringing through the likes of Ashley Young as a youth coach.

Watford had been hoping to confirm Gibbs' appointment this week but he has instead chosen to move to The Den under Holloway.

    It's a pity that we can't get a player when someone else is interested, we always seem to lose out there.

    Yeah, I was not saying I wanted him, but Ollie keeps trying for him, that's my point.
