Winning window

Watford’s relegation from the Premier League looked to spell the end of the Hornets futures of a host of the club’s stars. This proved the case for some.

Abdoulaye Doucoure joined Everton for £20 million, whilst Gerard Deulofeu moved to sister club Udinese along with Roberto Pereyra and Ignacio Pussetto.

However, a number of key figures have remained to help the club fight for promotion back to the Premier League. Both Troy Deeney and Ismaila Sarr were linked with last-minute moves, but have stayed.

Several senior midfielders have also remained. Tom Cleverly, Etienne Capoue, Nathaniel Chalobah and Will Hughes will continue plying their trade at Vicarage Road.

Having played 4 games, won 2, drawn 1 and lost 1, Watford sit 7th in the Championship. It was imperative that Vladimir Ivic’s side kept hold of as much quality as feasibly possible.

Another Sancho?

Manchester City have seen both the benefits and the regrets of an academy bursting with talent. Phil Foden has stormed into Pep Guardoila’s plans, to the point of becoming a regular in the Sky Blues’ starting eleven.

On the other hand, Jadon Sancho left to join Borrusia Dortmund, and has since become one of Europe’s hottest prospects.

Therefore, when another of City’s academy products decides to leave, quite rightly, there is much interest regarding how the move could turn out.

20-year-old defender Joel Latibeaudiere has joined Swansea City on a free transfer:

On joining the Swans, Latibeaudiere explained: “I felt the club would give ma chance to develop and play good football with the ball on the deck. You are looking at different patterns and ways to execute tactical ideas against opponents.“I like what I see, and hearing from those guys and how they loved playing for Swansea means I am over the moon to be here.”

Swansea are set to take on Huddersfield on Saturday the 17th of October at 15:00.
