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.
