Striker Stefano Okaka has joined Serie A club Udinese from Watford on a permanent deal.

The 30-year-old has signed a three-year contract at the Italian side, keeping him at the club until 2022.

Okaka spent the second half of last season on loan at Udinese and scored six goals in 16 appearances.

The Italy international moved to Watford from Anderlecht in 2016 and scored five goals in 39 appearances for the Hornets.

Meanwhile Venezuelan striker Adalberto Penaranda has signed for Belgian top-flight side KAS Eupen on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old, who scored in Tuesday's EFL Cup win against Coventry, has made three cup appearances for the club since signing in early 2016 and has had previous loan spells at Granada, Udinese and Malaga.
