Watford head coach Javi Gracia has revealed that he would like midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure to remain at Vicarage Road for "many years to come".
Doucoure has emerged as the one of the key players for the Hornets, with seven goals and two assists coming from 25 starts in the Premier League.
At a press conference, the 47-year-old told reporters: "I think he is playing well like the rest of the team.
"We got the victory in the last match because we played like a team and won as a team. I don't like to speak only about one player - of course all the players play at a high level because you need it if you want to win against Chelsea.
"I think [Doucoure] is in a big club at Watford. I hope he will be with us for many years to come. I am happy with their level and would like them to stay with us."
Doucoure's contract with Watford expires in 2020.
