OFFICIAL: Vydra Signs Five-Year Contract With Hornets

WATFORD FOOTBALL CLUB is delighted to announce that Matej Vydra has signed a five-year contract with the Hornets.

Having penned a permanent deal, the 23-year-old is beginning preparations for the 2015/16 Premier League season with the rest of his Hornets' team-mates at UCL London Colney.

Vydra scored 16 times from 31 league starts during Watford’s promotion-winning campaign, adding to the 22 goals he scored during his first year at Vicarage Road in 2012/13.

The Czech Republic international, who spent a year in the Premier League with West Bromwich Albion in 2013/14, has 15 senior caps to his name and has also represented his country at various youth levels.


Stadium Update | North-East Corner Transformation To Begin

OVER 1,000 extra seats will be available in total inside Vicarage Road after works are complete to the stadium's north-east corner and the front of The Sir Elton John Stand.

Nearly 400 more seats are set for installation in between the Vicarage Road & Sir Elton John Stands as part of transformatory works which will see a new, much larger Hornets Shop fronting onto Vicarage Road at the north-east corner of the ground.

Above the shop, there'll be extra hospitality offerings as Watford FC looks to provide additional accommodation as part of what is another significant development at the stadium.

This is the second capital expenditure project to be announced by the Hornets in a matter of days, following confirmation that 700 extra seats would be installed to the front of The Sir Elton John Stand (click HERE to read about this and other mandatory works), taking the stadium capacity beyond 21,000.
