Brice Dja Djedje will finally have the opportunity to get some first-team football under his belt again after moving back to France to join RC Lens.

The Ivorian international, whose last appearance for the Hornets came almost a year ago in the FA Cup fourth round exit at Millwall, has moved on loan for the rest of the season.

The 27-year-old defender moved to Vicarage Road from Marseille in July 2016, but failed to make a Premier League appearance under either Walter Mazzarri or Marco Silva and has more recently played in midfield for the Hornets' Under-23 side.
