Anya Makes Rams Move

Watford FC confirms the departure of Ikechi Anya on a permanent transfer to Championship Derby County for an undisclosed fee.
 
The 28-year-old winger made 138 appearances for the Hornets, having joined the club from Granada in the summer of 2012.
 
Anya played a key role as Watford reached the Premier League in season 2014/15 – this after being part of a near miss two years earlier, when representing Gianfranco Zola’s Watford in the Championship Play-Off Final of 2013.
 
Everyone at Vicarage Road wishes Ikechi the best of luck for the future, and thanks him for his contribution to the success of the club.

Mariappa | "This Is Home For Me"

Adrian Mariappa feels like he has come 'home' after returning to Vicarage Road on a three-year deal on Tuesday.

The 29-year old is a Golden Boy once again after previously leaving for Reading in 2012, and he spoke to watfordfc.com shortly after putting pen to paper. 

"I'm delighted to be back. This is home for me so I'm utterly delighted to get the deal done.

"As soon as the phone calls were made, for me, this was the only place I wanted to come. When you're at a club from the age of eight, even when you go away home is where the heart is so coming back was definitely an easy decision for me."
