Watford sign Josh McEachran on loan from Chelsea
Watford have signed Josh McEachran on loan from Chelsea until January 2.
Gianfranco Zola has made no secret of his wish to bolster his midfield options and has secured the 20-year-old until the New Year, with the option to extend the deal until the end of the season.
The Oxford-born player is not available for tomorrow's trip to Barnsley, but will link up with his new teammates after the game.
The Hornets have confirmed McEachran is eligible for Tuesday night's Capital One Cup tie against Norwich City, if selected.
McEachran spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough where he made a total of 38 appearances. He was also previously on loan at Swansea City and to date has made a total of seven starts for his parent club - but just one in the Premier League - as well as 15 substitute appearances for the Stamford Bridge outfit after coming up through their ranks.
The midfielder's move comes after the Hornets were unsuccessful in their attempts to bring McEachran's club-mate Nathaniel Chalobah back to Vicarage Road for a second spell after he completed a loan move to Nottingham Forest last night.
