Ecuador's World Cup full back Juan Carlos Paredes agrees Watford move

Watford Observer: Watford agree deal for World Cup full back Watford agree deal for World Cup full back

The Hornets have agreed a deal with Ecuador full back Juan Carlos Paredes, the Watford Observer understands.

Watford have been confident of securing his signature for more than a month and we understand a move has now been agreed.

Paredes failed to report to training for Barcelona Sporting Club on Monday and the Ecuadorian club's president Francisco Hidalgo confirmed the player was likely to be fined.

Hidalgo claimed a deal has yet to be reached with Watford but we understand terms have been agreed with the player, although it is yet to be decided whether he will join the Hornets directly or via fellow Pozzo clubs Granada or Udinese. 

Paredes, who turned 27 today, played every minute of his country's World Cup campaign, as they finished third in Group E.

Paredes, who can play across the backline, has spent the whole of his career in his native country, also featuring for Rocafuerte, Deportivo Cuenca and Deportivo Quito, where he won the league title in 2011.

Udinese, who like Watford are owned by the Pozzos, were keen on signing the player for more than six months and he reportedly attracted interest from clubs around Europe prior to the World Cup.

Happy days are here again my fellow yellow pumpkins. I'm not going to get too excited, especially after the signings we made this time last year, and their inability to play together thereafter, but it's good that we can get this calibre of player into Watford.

May King Juan Carlos reign

I can't help feeling we were getting this excited this time last year... There are a lot of relatively new players to gel together, again. I think an awful lot will ride on intangible stuff like team spirit, whether or not the manager can instil a winning mentality etc. But, on paper, it looks great!

I think we should make that "get us in the top six". It won't be easy and it's a sobering thought that Fulham have just spent £11m on one player. Still, it's good to think that we'll be one of the big guns next season.

Welcome on board Juan Carlos. That covers the right back position - and why Faraoini went back to Udinese.

Let's not be too harsh on his defensive qualities - it was the World Cup and against better opposition than we will face week in week out. Let's give him a chance and see whether he will adapt to English Championship football and to our culture. Be patient and give him time.

Give him a warm Watford welcome and get behind him.

Now for Ambrosini and I think we are almost there.

Those expressing words of caution are right to do so. I was way too optimistic last season, and have learnt a bit of respect for the 'on paper' v 'on the pitch' team. However, this time around we have signed players who know the Championship and/or the Premier... And very few who will be new to the English game. There is now PLENTY of time to get them bonded. Our bench will be pretty incredible, let alone the starting XI... But we need to support, and not just expect. You orns.........

Not necessarily a bad thing, as we've proved with Vydra in the team, Abdi fit and a competent defence, it can be devastating. Still, I can't help wondering how Dyer's going to fit into that formation. He's the only one that doesn't obviously fit a 3-5-2 formation. Nevertheless, looking forward to seeing how it's done. :)

In all fairness he was probably up the pitch to try and help get a winner himself? Probably shattered from playing in hot conditions as well. Looked lively going forward against France but beyond that didn't notice much of him. In any case, international form can be deceptive. I think we should reserve judgement until we see him in a Watford shirt.
