Sebastian Prodl has been announced as an Udinese player after his Watford contract was terminated on transfer deadline day.

The Austrian international was linked with a move to the Italian side during the transfer window and he arrived in Italy today to finally complete the switch.

He will join up with former Watford team-mates Marvin Zeegelaar, who joined the Serie A club in January, Stefano Okaka and the out-on-loan Ken Sema.

Prodl becomes the latest player to make the move between Watford and Udinese, with both clubs owned by the Pozzo family. Ignacio Pussetto moved in the opposite direction earlier this year.

The 32-year-old joined the Hornets in 2015 and was named Player of the Season for the 2016/17 campaign.

However in the last two seasons injuries hampered his progress and he was unable to hold down a place in the starting lineup.

After his departure was announced, he told the Watford website: "It was always a dream to play in the Premier League and Watford gave me this opportunity.

“I will always reflect very positively on my time here. When I signed four and a half years ago, my gut told me it was going to be a very good move and everything has proved this to be right.

“I am just grateful to have Watford on my CV, I am moving on now but I am glad I have been here.

“Being voted Player of the Season as a defender was a special honour. Big thanks to all the supporters for always believing in me, even when I wasn't playing.

“I will always come back and watch the guys play at Vicarage Road and Watford will always have a place in my heart.”
