Watford bring in seven new faces

Watford have ushered in the Pozzo family's ownership and Gianfranco Zola's management in dramatic style by announcing the arrival of seven new signings at Vicarage Road.

The Italian family announced their acquisition of the championship Hornets earlier this summer, with the news soon followed by confirmation that Zola would replace Sean Dyche - who guided the team to 11th place last season - as manager.

Premier League experience has been added to the squad in the shape of goalkeeper Manuel Almunia, who has agreed a one-year deal after leaving Arsenal, and defender Fitz Hall, who has also signed for a year after departing from QPR.

The Pozzos also own both Udinese and Granada, and that connection has enabled a further five players to be brought in on loan.

Midfielder Almen Abdi and forwards Matej Vydra and Steve Leo Beleck have arrived from Udinese, while defender Daniel Pudil and striker Ikechi Anya have come in from Granada.

The Watford technical director, Gianluca Nani, told the club's official website: "We expect these players to make a very positive impact on Gianfranco Zola's squad.

"We are constantly looking to add quality here for Watford, and this is a task which will be ongoing throughout the season."
