WATFORD have secured the services of promising Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin on loan until January 2 2014.
The Spanish youth international joined the north London club in the summer of 2011 from Barcelona.
Bellerin, a pacy right back, with a taste for getting forward, will hand Hornets’ Head Coach Gianfranco Zola further options over the next few months.
The 18-year-old made his first-team debut in the Capital One Cup in September against West Bromwich Albion.
Bellerin’s transfer is subject to Premier League clearance.
The Spaniard will wear shirt number 3 at Vicarage Road.
