Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is pleased to see Watford return to the Premier League.

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has taken to social networking site Twitter to revel in Watford’s promotion to the Premier League.

The Hornets guaranteed their place in the top two of the Championship this season with a 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion away from home earlier today.

Troy Deeney put Watford in the lead at the Amex Stadium just before the half-hour mark, and Matej Vydra secured the points with his side’s second in the final minutes.

With promotion rivals Middlesbrough and Norwich both dropping points later in the day, Watford are now certain to finish in the automatic promotion spots.

After it was confirmed that Slavisa Jokanovic’s side will feature in the top flight of English football next season, Bellerin posted the following message on Twitter:

Bellerin played on loan for Watford last season, creating three chances in eight appearances in the Championship. The 20-year-old had a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 50% on those games.
