The 17-year-old Dubliner recently signed a professional deal at Watford but Marco Silva might have seen enough of him in his short time with the Hornets to have recommended that the Blues try and lure him into their Under-23s setup under David Unsworth.
Cassidy scored 17 times in 25 games at youth level for the Hornets and was recently named in Ireland's U17s squad for the European Championships last month.

More chance of signing Butch Cassidy than this kid.

Buyer beware â€” if they are really interested.

Anyway, as for this article, this is just a bit of lazy journalism. The lad Cassidy is doing well but will not be going anywhere, the fact that he is Irish and Silva is now in charge is just a case of putting two and two together.
I can't see us selling anyone to you in the immediate future, but I hope the bad feelings between boardrooms doesn't lend its way to the fans.
All the best for next season. The one criticism I always had of Silva: he likes zonal marking at set pieces and that doesn't work.
