Zola's Watford closing deals for eight new signings
Gianfranco Zola's Championship Watford are finalising deals for EIGHT new signings.
Marco Cassetti, Joel Ekstrand, Ikechi Anya, Daniel Pudil and Almen Abdi, all of whom spent last season on loan at Vicarage Road, are poised to sign, says the Daily Mail.
Watford took advantage of a loophole in regulations last season by making 14 loan signings from abroad.
However, Football League clubs voted for limiting the number of overseas loan players in matchday squads to five, and a maximum of eight players brought in on loan throughout the course of a season.
