Two of Watford's Under-23 players have been sent out on short-term loans, the club has confirmed.

The 2018/19 campaign's Academy Player of the Season Dan Phillips has joined Hemel Hempstead Town until January after signing a professional contract with the Hornets earlier this month.

The central midfielder put pen to paper on a year-long deal with the club alongside Nigeria U-20 international Jayden Bennetts.

Meanwhile, Harry Hudson will spend a month on loan with Isthmian League side Cray Wanderers.

Hudson, a former West Ham United academy player, is a defender and has previously featured at both centre-back and full-back.
