Matej Vydra: Watford sign Udinese striker on five-year deal
Watford have signed Czech Republic striker Matej Vydra from Italian side Udinese on a five-year contract.
The 23-year-old has had two separate loan spells at Vicarage Road, and scored 16 times from 31 league starts during the Hornets' promotion-winning 2014-15 campaign from the Championship.
Vydra, who has four goals in 15 international games, moves from a club run by the Watford-owning Pozzo family.
Meanwhile, defender Gabriele Angella has signed a new five-year deal.
The 26-year-old former Italy Under-21 international has scored 10 goals in 81 games since moving from Udinese two years ago.
In between his two loan stints at Vicarage Road, Vydra spent the 2013-14 campaign in the Premier League with West Brom, scoring three goals from 25 appearances.
