Watford have signed Daniel Pudil and Matej Vydra on season-long loan deals from Granda & Udinese respectively, according to the players themselves.
Pudil, 26, a Czech Republic international with 22 caps spent last season on-loan from Granada at Serie A side Cesena.
Striker Vydra, 20, is a Czech Republic U21 international who currently plays for Udinese, spending last season on-loan at Club Brugge in Belgium.
The 2011-12 season was a virtual write-off for Vydra, who spent most of the season on the sidelines with injury.
The pair have both confirmed to Czech sources that they will be signing on-loan for the Hornets for the forthcoming season.
'I did not have to think twice [about joining Watford],' Pudil told chovanecsport.cz.
'I came here five years ago on trial and loved it.
'I know Watford have excellent fans so when my agent told me about this option a few days ago, I welcomed it.'
Vydra, who has made two first-team appearances for the Zebrette since signing from Banik Ostrava in 2010 said of his move:
'Hopefully I will win a place in the starting line-up. I'm hungry for football after last season was marred by injury.
'I feel fit and the knee is keeping together. I hope myself and Dan will be good assets for Watford.'
Welcome to Watford, Daniel & Matej.
