Watford sign five Udinese players

Championship side Watford have signed no less than five players from Udinese on transfer deadline day.

The Serie A club have been owned by the Pozzo family for 20 years and they recently bought the Championship club as well.

As a result, Almen Abdi, Matej Vidra and Steve Beleck have all joined Watford on season-long loans from the Zebrette, but that was just for starters.

The Hornets have announced on their official website that Neuton, Joel Ekstrand, Jean-Alain Fanchone, Cristian Battocchio and Fernando Forestieri have all arrived from Udinese on transfer deadline day.

The five youngsters have all been signed on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.

The new contingent has been brought to help the Hornets gain promotion to the Premier League, and with Gianfranco Zola at the helm, their adaptation period should be shorter than with other new signings.

Watford have been very active in the summer transfer window, with Daniel Pudil, Manuel Almunia and Fitz Hall some of the players signed this summer.
