Watford’s Under-23 squad has been bolstered by the arrival of five new signings.

Jamal Balogun, Sam Dalby, Cameron Green, Joseph Hungbo and Henry Wise will all be part of the Hornets’ development squad during the 2019/20 season.

Dalby - who has signed a two-year deal with an additional one-year option - is a 19-year-old forward who signs from Leeds United, having spent the second half of last season on loan at Morecambe.

Balogun, Green, Hungbo and Wise have all signed one-year contracts.
Balogun, 19, and Green, 20, are both full-backs who have joined from Reading.
Nineteen-year-old winger Hungbo arrives from Crystal Palace, while Wise, also 19, is a former Derby County midfielder.

The Hornets can also confirm that Michael Folivi has signed a new contract that takes him through to June 2020, with the option for a further 12 months.

The 21-year-old striker agreed earlier this week to join AFC Wimbledon on a season-long loan.
