Argentinian winger Ignacio Pussetto has become Watford’s first signing of the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old has joined the Hornets from Serie A side Udinese on a four-and-a-half-year deal for a reported £7million fee.

Pussetto, who can also play as a striker or an attacking midfielder, spent 18 months in Italy, making 50 appearances and scoring five goals.

In a video posted on the club’s Twitter account, Pussetto said: “Hello Watford fans, I am very happy to be here, see you soon.”

He has previously played for Huracan in Argentina before his move to Europe in 2018 and has mostly been used as a substitute during his time with Udinese.

Meanwhile, Nigel Pearson insists that Watford are still in a relegation fight despite them moving out of the drop zone for the first time this season.

Pearson has inspired a reaction from the Hornets since his appointment on 6th December, and equalled the biggest win of his short time in charge with a 3-0 triumph over Bournemouth on Sunday.

The victory means Watford are unbeaten in six games, and have moved up to 17th place in the league. After the game, Pearson highlighted how happy he was with the resilience his side are showing. Read more…
