How Watford fans reacted to Matej Vydra's permanent move

Matej Vydra has returned to Watford on a permanent basis after leaving Udinese to sign a five-year deal with the Premier League club.

As revealed on the club's official website, Watford have signed striker Matej Vydra from Italian outfit Udinese on a permanent deal. Having spent two of the past three seasons on loan at Vicarage Road, the 22-year-old has penned a five-year contract with the Premier League new boys.

He first joined the Hornets on loan ahead of the 2012/13 season, scoring 20 goals as the club just missed out on promotion out of the Championship. Following a year in the Premier League with West Bromwich Albion - during which he netted just three times in 23 appearances - he made his return to Watford, scoring 16 goals to fire the club back into the top flight. 

The Czech Republic international was on target in a 2-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion that sealed Watford's place in the Premier League and also struck in a 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday on the final day of the season, before Atdhe Nuhiu's late goal ensured Bournemouth were crowned champions.

A statement from the club read: "Watford Football Club is delighted to announce that Matej Vydra has signed a five-year contract with the Hornets. Having penned a permanent deal, the 23-year-old is beginning preparations for the 2015/16 Premier League season with the rest of his Hornets' team-mates at UCL London Colney."
