Incoming: Returning From Last Year

You all know them, so we’ll spare you the fanfare. Here are the “loanees” of yesteryear, “the permies” of today.

Marco Cassetti, 36 – Signed until 2014

Old Italian man returns for one last year. Hertfordshire housewives and facial hair enthusiasts rejoice.

Daniel Pudil, 27 – Signed until 2017

Czech wing-back with genuinely baffling love of Watford signs on for the long-haul. Looks like he’ll be competing with Anya for the spot on the left.

Ikechi Anya, 25 – Signed until 2016

Speedy pan-ethnic speedster back for another three years. Came on leaps and bounds at the back end of the season. Is fast.

Cristian Battocchio, 21 – Signed until 2016

Fantastic counter-attacker took his time to tie up a new deal but should be a key figure in filling the gap left by Nathaniel Chalobah. Big teeth, big heart.

Almen Abdi, 26 – Signed until 2016

First Player of the Season to still be at Watford the following year since 07/08. Ridiculous fact, ridiculously good player. He’s the man.

Joel Ekstrand, 24 – Signed until 2016

Solid Swedish centre back took the longest to return, but he’s here now ready to partner Gabriele Angella at the heart of Watford’s defence.

Gone but not forgotten: Alex Geijo, Steve Beleck, Geoffrey Mujangi Bia, Neuton

Gone and forgotten: Jean Alain Fanchone

Stuck on the London Underground: Matej Vydra
