Britos and Jurado jet in to bolster ranks at Watford

Watford have signed Miguel Britos and Jose Manuel Jurado, as Quique Flores continues to bolster his squad for the Premier League.

The top-flight new-boys, who finished second in the Championship last season, have already been the busiest club in the division ahead of the new term, with a number of new arrivals at Vicarage Road. This includes a club record deal for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Etienne Capoue, and a permanent deal for Udinese striker Matej Vydra.

Flores has now moved to further bolster his squad by signing Britos from Napoli. The 30-year-old Uruguayan, who was sent off in his final match for his former club after head-butting Juventus ace Alvaro Morata, won the Coppa Italia twice with the Serie A side but is now relishing the opportunity of testing his quality in a different country.

“I always loved watching the Premier League so as soon as the opportunity to join Watford came up I didn’t need to think twice about it, I wanted to come straight away,” the defender told the official club website. “My ambition is to help Watford to stay in the Premier League, and it is now a matter of concentrating hard on winning every game.”

This transfer was quickly followed by a move for Jurado, who arrives from Spartak Moscow. The 29-year-old midfielder has worked with Flores before with great success, most notably in 2010 when they won the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cu[p with Atletico Madrid. Like Britos, the former Spain Under-21 international has penned a three-year deal.
