Watford acquire five more loans from Pozzo's Udinese

Watford have secured season-long loans for five Udinese players, with the option for permanent deals next summer.

Defenders Jean-Alain Fanchone, 23, Neuton Piccoli, 22, and Lars Ekstrand, 23, have joined along with midfielder Cristian Battocchio, 20, and striker Fernando Forestieri, 22.

They have now signed 10 players on loan from the Serie A outfit this summer.

Both clubs are owned by the Italian Pozzo family, who acquired the Hornets from Laurence Bassini in June.
