Championship side Hull City are reportedly keen on a loan move for Watford attacker Isaac Success.
Success joined Watford in a club record £12.5m move from Granada last summer and despite impressing early on, the attacker is dangerously close to becoming a flop at the club.
The forward's Hornets career has been plagued with injuries, with the 21-year-old making just 17 league appearances last season and scoring only one goal.
According to a report from the Hertfordshire Mercury, a permanent deal for the attacker doesn't look likely, but a loan move to Hull City could work.
Watford boss Silva appears to respect the forward, but doesn't believe he can currently compete with the attacking talent the side has. The Nigerian forward has failed to make the match day squad so far this season.
In regard to Success' status at the club, Watford boss Silva said: "It surprises me, this. Until now I haven't spoken with anybody about the situation.
"This situation: He's a young boy and boy who needs to adapt to this football, and to our ideas as well.
"We tried to put that to him as soon as possible because he's one player we believe in as a project - as a Watford project. Until now I don't have a decision. He stays with us, he works hard and tried to find his space in the team. It's what I want him to do."
With Watford breaking the bank for Burnley striker Andre Gray and promising Fluminense attacker Richarlison, Success' hopes of breaking back into the team have slimmed considerably.
