DONE DEAL: Watford land Okaka from Anderlecht

Watford have confirmed the signing of Stefano Okaka from Belgian club Anderlecht.

The Italian striker has joined the Hornets on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Okaka arrives at Vicarage Road after scoring 17 goals for Anderlecht last season, having previously spent time at Sampdoria, Parma and AS Roma, plus a number of loan deals including one at Fulham.

The 27-year-old, of Nigerian heritage, has played four times for Italy and has appeared twice in England when playing in the FA Cup for the Cottagers in 2010/11.

Okaka becomes Walter Mazzarri's ninth summer signing following the additions of Roberto Pereyra, Isaac Success, Daryl Janmaat, Christian Kabasele, Jerome Sinclair, Brice Dja-Djedje, Younes Kabul and Charlie Bannister.
