After selling of Four (4) players, Watford is now in a deep danger

This summer’s transfer window was important for Watford FC.


The club failed to bounce back up to the Premier League last season and will have been keen to put together a squad capable of challenging for promotion under Valérien Ismaël this season.

As a result, the team from Hertfordshire signed a number of new players before the close of the market in early September.

However, there were also plenty of departures from the club to make space for the arrivals and it is those who left the Hornets who we are focusing on today.

Here we’ve taken a look at the 19 players that left Watford in the summer and how they’ve fared since.
Joao Pedro joined Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion for £30m in the summer.

Since moving to the South Coast the 22-year-old has scored two top-flight goals and has registered one assist in eight games.

It is arguably in the Europa League where striker Pedro has done his best work this season with the Brazilian having scored three goals in two European matches.

Brighton are currently sixth in the Premier League after eight games but are bottom of Europa League Group B having failed to win a game in the competition thus far.
Right-winger Ismaila Sarr was the second most expensive departure from Watford in the summer with the 25-year-old Senegalese joining Olympique Marseille for a fee of £15m.

Coincidentally Sarr’s new club is in the same Europa League group as Pedro’s Brighton with the French Club second in group B.

25-year-old Sarr hasn’t scored in his solitary Europa League appearance against Brighton but has scored three goals in six Ligue 1 appearances.

Marseille are sixth in the French top flight after eight games.
Defender Christian Kabasele joined Serie A club Udinese in the summer. He has made four appearances making the starting eleven 50% of the time as his new club currently sit 17th in Serie A.
