WATFORD have completed the £7million signing of Ignacio Pussetto on a four-and-a-half-year deal from Udinese.
The Argentine forward, 24, has officially joined from the Serie A side and has signed a contract which runs until at least the summer of 2025.
Posting on Twitter, Watford released the news, saying: “Welcome Ignacio.
We’re pleased to announce the permanent signing of Argentinian winger Ignacio Pussetto from @Udinese_1896 on a four-and-a-half-year deal.”
Pussetto mustered just five goals in 50 games for Udinese, but new Hornets boss Nigel Pearson is hopeful he can get amongst the goals in England.
The winger – who can also play as a No9 – has scored just one this season, in the 3-1 defeat to Juventus.
Prior to his 18 months in Italy, Pussetto played for Huracan in his native Argentina.
The 5ft 11in forward scored 11 times in 42 matches for the club.
Meanwhile, Watford were left frustrated after their FA Cup third-round replay with Tranmere was postponed due to heavy rainfall.
Both Sunday and Monday saw downpours hammer the Prenton Park pitch after Storm Brendan struck.
An announcement on the rescheduling of the match is expected in due course with next midweek ruled out due to a league fixture in the book for Watford.
