Acuna joins on loan from Udinese

Paraguayan striker Javier Acuna has joined Watford on loan, as anticipated, after joining Udinese from Real Madrid B.

Acuna, 25, joined Udinese from Real Madrid's B side and will immediately join the Hornets on a season-long loan deal, as confirmed by Udinese's official site.

'Udinese Calcio announces the acquisition of sports performance by Carlos Javier Acuña Caballero, striker born in Encarnación in Paraguay on 23-06-1988. In the last two seasons Caballero (175cm) wore the shirt of Girona, Spain Secunda Division, scoring 21 goals in 56 appearances. It will initially be loaned to Watford.'

Taking to Twitter (@cjac9) to confirm his arrival in Hertfordshire, Acuna expressed his pleasure at becoming a Hornet for the next year:




The 5'9' striker spent the last two seasons on loan at Spanish Liga Adelante (Second Division) side Girona, where he scored 22 league goals in just 33 starts.

A Paraguay Under-17 and Under-20 international with 18 caps and eight goals across both levels, Acuna has previously turned out for Cadiz, Salamanca (loan), Real Madrid B and Recreativo (loan).

Welcome to Watford, Javier.
