Watford live updates
Fulham's 21-year-old left-back Matthew Briggs has joined Watford on loan for a month, Cottagers boss Martin Jol announced today.
Almen Abdi has confirmed that talks have opened about a permanent switch to Watford from loan club Udinese.
The midfielder was one of 10 players to arrive from the Serie A side last summer shortly after the Hornets' takeover by the Pozzo family, who control both clubs as well as Spanish side Granada.
Abdi has proved a successful addition having made 24 league starts and scored eight goals, the third highest among Watford's ranks behind 19-goal top scorer Matej Vydra, another Udinese loanee who is also in talks to turn his season-long stay into a permanent deal.
GOAL - Manchester City 3-0 Watford (Lopes)
Marcos Lopes - who likes to be called Rony after Ronaldinho, apparently - has his first ever senior goal for Man City and the champions of England are into tomorrow's draw.
