Ranegie to join permanently, Merkel on loan

Mathias Ranegie will sign for Watford permanently this January, whilst Alexander Merkel will join on-loan, according to The Watford Observer.

The Udinese pair have been linked with moves to Watford since last summer, but concrete evidence that both will join in some capacity has presented itself in recent days.

Both players were pictured in the director's box at the 0-0 draw with Queens Park Rangers on December 29, and Merkel has since tweeted an image which appear to be him signing for Watford.



Confirmation from the club of the pair's signature is expected in the near future.

In other news, loan trio Hector Bellerin, Josh McEachran and George Thorne all see their loan agreements expire today.

McEachran's last outing came on November 23 against Bolton, and the Chelsea man has been leapfrogged by Thorne in the pecking order.

With Merkel arriving also, the 20 year-old's first-team chance at Vicarage Road look extremely slim.

Both Thorne and Bellerin have featured frequently since their loan arrivals and would seem much more likely to extend their stays in WD18.
