Watford's transfers rated

2015-09-02 15:22

Cape Town - Quique Sanchez Flores has given Watford every chance of staying up by using the transfer window to his benefit this summer. 

Watford's transfers rated: 8/10

Watford have bolstered their squad with a number of good additions but Sebastian Prodl and Allan Nyom look to be the best of the bunch.

Transfer summary:

In: Sebastian Prodl (Werder Bremen, free), Giedrius Arlauskis (Steaua Bucharest, free), Matej Vydra (Udinese, undisclosed), Valon Behrami (Hamburg, £3m), Jose Holebas (Roma, undisclosed), Etienne Capoue (Tottenham Hotspur, undisclosed), Allan Nyom (Udinese, undisclosed), Miguel Britos (Napoli, undisclosed), Jose Manuel Jurado (Spartak Moscow, undisclosed), Steven Berghuis (AZ, £4.6m), Alessandro Diamanti (Guangzhou Evergrande, loan), Nathan Ake (Chelsea, loan), Obbi Oularé (Club Brugge, undisclosed), Adlene Guedioura (Crystal Palace, undisclosed), Victor Ibarbo (Cagliari, loan)

Out: Marco Motta (released), Luke O'Nien (released), Lewis McGugan (Sheffield Wednesday, undisclosed), Juanfran (Deportivo, loan), Jonathan Bond (Reading, undisclosed), Diego Fabbrini (Middlesbrough, loan), Sean Murray (Wigan Athletic, loan), Miguel Layun (Porto, loan)

Best bit of business: Some excellent signings considering the club has just earned promotion - will be interesting to see what deadline day signing Victor Ibarbo can muster in the Premier League.

Worst bit of business: Not sure they did any bad business.
