Former Manchester United defender Reece Brown and Ikechi Anya have become the latest players to sign for Watford.

The Hornets have confirmed Brown has signed a two-year deal and Anya has penned a contract which will expire in 2016.

Brown, the younger brother of former England international Wes, did not make an appearance for Manchester United but was with the club from the age of nine.

The defender, 21, has featured in all of the Hornets' pre-season matches and has Football League experience following loan spells at Ipswich Town, Coventry City, Oldham Athletic, Doncaster Rovers and Bradford City.

Anya, 25, made 29 appearances for Watford last season on loan from Granada.

Watford also confirmed the Football League and FA have given 'full clearance' for the signings of Marco Davide Faraoni, Marco Cassetti, Daniel Pudil and Javier Acuna, who were four of eight signings confirmed by the club on Friday.

The Golden Boys have now signed 13 players - if you include Manuel Almunia who was out of contract - and that is expected to become 15 shortly with the confirmation of Joel Ekstrand's and Iriney Santos' arrival.

Iriney linked up with the club last week and we understand Ekstrand is close to finalising his contract with the Hornets.
