Watford have confirmed defenders Miguel Britos and Tommie Hoban will leave Vicarage Road this summer.

Both players are out of contract at the end of this month and their departures had been expected, with the Premier League due to publish each club's retained list shortly.

Having joined from Napoli four years ago, Britos made 74 apperarances for the Hornets and scored two goals. However, he has been limited to just 15 Premier League games in the past two seasons and admitted in an interview in March that he was looking to return to his native Uruguay at the end of the season.

Fellow centre-half Hoban made his debut as a 17-year-old in May 2011 and played 58 times for the Hornets, but much of his career since has been blighted by a succession of injuries and he is currently recovering from damaging a cruciate ligament he sustained on loan at Aberdeen in February.

As we reported a short time ago, Watford have also confirmed they remain in talks with Heurelho Gomes over his future at Vicarage Road.
