The Standard reports that teams including QPR, Watford, and Birmingham City are considering possible trades at the end of the current campaign.

The 21-year-old, who joined the Spanish team last summer after leaving Aston Villa, is angry about how little playing time he has received.

This season, he has only played for Valencia’s B team and has not yet made an appearance for the main club.

He may be returning to English football in the near future in an attempt to get more reliable playing time.

Carlton Palmer gives Declan Frith transfer verdict


According to Carlton Palmer, Championship clubs shouldn’t be worried about Valencia attempting to include a sell-on clause in any agreement with Frith.

He asserted that given his promise as a young player, it will be worthwhile to take a chance on the highly regarded forward nevertheless.

Palmer informed Football League World that Declan Frith will likely depart Valencia this summer.

The 21-year-old, who was previously at Chelsea and Aston Villa, is likely annoyed by his dearth of first team opportunities.

“Clubs in the UK, such as QPR, Birmingham City, and Watford, are all keeping an eye on him. He is well-liked in England and finished his time in the Aston Villa academy with 12 goals and 8 assists.”

The Championship is showing interest in the 21-year-old.

He can play as a striker, left winger, or left back. He also had time at Chelsea.

“Since the US national team holds him in such high respect, it is only natural that clubs want to work with him as the season draws near.

“I wouldn’t be concerned about the substantial sell-on cost.

You won’t have to worry about that because you only receive that payment if he shows up and delivers the things.

“You’re hoping he shows up and keeps his word.

“He is a highly talented player who needs to play regularly for a first team. I wouldn’t worry about the sell-on clause for any club that can provide him with first team football; he just has to get back on the field and show off his incredible talent.”

Watford have secured their place in the Championship for another season, but it remains unknown who will manage the team next year.

Meanwhile, Birmingham City and QPR are both still at risk of suffering relegation to League One, with the Blues currently sitting 22nd in the table.

QPR have a four point gap to the relegation zone with just two games to go, but the Midlands outfit are at serious risk of going down as we head into the last two games.

This could have an impact in deciding which club Frith prefers to sign for this summer, should he leave Valencia for English football.

Tom Cleverley

Move to the Championship could be what Frith needs

The 21-year-old might benefit from returning to England in the summer in order to play regular senior football at a higher level.

Birmingham’s relegation to League One will make QPR and Watford seem like better choices for him.

The youthful striker may find QPR’s boss, Martí Cifuentes, intriguing as well.

Any transfer to Watford could be contingent upon the appointment of a permanent manager; at present, Tom Cleverley holds the position only temporarily.
