Udinese loan three more to Hornets

Udinese loan three more to Hornets

Watford have this afternoon signed another three players on loan from Udinese in Gabriele Angella, Fernando Forestieri and Neuton, according to Football Italia.

Watford have been linked heavily with both Brazilian defender Neuton and Italian defender Angella, but striker Forestieri is a new name to Hornet's supporters.

If the three new faces are confirmed it will take the number of Pozzo family owned loanees at Vicarage Road to 10 with Daniel Pudil, Matej Vydra, Steve Leo Beleck, Ikechi Anya, Almen Abdi, Alex Geijo and Marco Cassetti. Geoffrey Mujangi Bia is however expected to make that number 11.

Forestieri, 22, is an Italian-Argentian forward who plays as second-striker. Having served his football apprenticeship with Argentian sides Newell's Old Boys and Boca Juniors, he moved to Italian side Genoa in 2006.

Loan spells with Siena and Vicenza followed before Udinese snapped him up in 2009. The Zebrette immediately loaned 5'7 forward out to Malaga, followed by Empoli and Bari.

The Rosario born frontman has also won Italy caps at U17, 17, 20 & 21 level.

Neuton Sergio Piccoli, to give him his full title, is a Brazilian centre-half, also capable of playing left-back.

The 22 year-old defender signed for Udinese from Gremio in 2011 and has made four first team appearances for the Friuli club, though he had been expected to make a bigger first-team impact this season.

Born in Erechim, the Brazilian made his debut for Udinese against Arsenal in the Champions League Play-Off last season.

Finally, there's 23 year-old Italian centre-half Angella. Born in Florence, Angella has made eight appearances for the Udinese first-team since signing in 2010.

The strapping 6'3 defender had previously turned out for Empoli, where he spent two years making 51 league appearances.

As well as appearing for Udinese, Angella has been loaned out to Siena and latterly Reggina, where he made 19 appearances in Serie A last term.

As soon as there is official confirmation of any of our new loan arrival, Vital Watford will bring it to you.

Never known anything like it and to be honest I just think it's great, of course some will not, ultimately this demonstrates that the Pozzos mean business, no more having to worry about players being recalled, remember A. Johnson, Mutch, if they are quality and I do hope this is the case, then bring it on.

So much to say on this subject! When it was just Vydra/Abdi/Pudil, it was quite exciting. Now we are getting so many that the identity of the club is being ripped out for me. I'm sure a lot of people would say that happens every summer when the current batch of players go elsewhere, but this is something else. There should be rules in place to prevent clubs loaning so many players to another club from abroad, like there are for internal loans. Re. departures, Zola says we need to move players on, yet we're signing loads. Unless some move on, loads are going to be left disappointed and that is no use. None of it will help continuity and it could be a while before we are 100% settled and all pulling in the same direction. I'd also say that the loanees are going to be picked over the permanent players, so if they get moved on, are we going to have a squad of X-teen loanees plus a handful of our own players? As a Watford legend once said, 'do I not like that?'

I understand your view and there are several ways of looking at it. Firstly, as I understand it the club are only allowed to spend so much on players as set out in the agreement set by the Bond Holders! So what is the point in signing inferior to what we can get from our sister clubs? If we have ever signed anyone of quality, they have tended to move on pretty sharp after a bid has come in. We are signing players on year loans, no more upset of players being recalled by their clubs and destroying our seasons in the past. These players are professionals and so I see no difference in a loan or permanent signing. We have to look at it as if we are in the Euro, we are stronger as a company with 2 other clubs, as long as the players coming in are of a better quality than what we have, ultimately if promotion is gained, no one will be questioning the methods. The other way of looking at it, is we could be on minus 10 points, with no players and no hope, I don't think there were many other potential owners queuing up!
