Exeter City have signed Watford's Matthew Whichelow on a month-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old has scored three times for the Hornets in 19 appearances in the Championship and can play either up front or on the wing.

His signing comes as City suffer from an injury crisis up front, with Guillem Bauza and John O'Flynn only just returning to training.

Daniel Nardiello still has two games to serve of a three-match ban.

Whichelow has gone straight into the City squad for the League One match with AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.
