Watford's Troy Deeney before the match

Hornets pair Almen Abdi and Daniel Pudil have completed their moves to Hillsborough.

Watford striker Troy Deeney messaged ex-teammates Almen Abdi and Daniel Pudil on Twitter after their moves to Sheffield Wednesday.

The trio played integral roles in the Hornets' ascent to the Premier League, however, only Deeney features in the plans of new boss Walter Mazzarri.

Abdi played 32 times upon Watford's return to the top flight but was allowed to join the Owls in a double deal with Pudil, who spent last season on loan at Hillsborough, on Thursday.

"Best of look prof Almen Abdi been a pleasure to have you as a team mate enjoy your new adventure with Daniel Pudil (sic)," Deeney posted afterwards.

The pair become the third and fourth members of Watford's promotion side currently employed by Carlos Carvalhal's Wednesday, with Fernando Forestieri and Lewis McGugan also on the books.

And after Pudil reciprocated, Deeney, who was reportedly valued at £30 million amid interest from Leicester City (Independent), replied: "Hope you and the family enjoy the north look after Fernando Forestieri for me."

Wednesday, who finished sixth in last season's Championship, losing the play-off final 1-0 to Hull City, look to be building a side capable of going one better this time around.

Former Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher has already been added to a squad which was among the division's top scorers last term and further additions are expected.

However, McGugan seems unlikely to stick around after Carvalhal told the six-goal he could leave the club this week (Sheffield Star).
