Invisible man Juanfran's exile from Watford will continue for at least another year after joining Deportivo on a season-long loan.

The 27-year-old was first announced as a Hornets player in September 2014, in a £1.5million deal, but did not formally join the club until the following summer, and spent the season on loan at Deportivo from then-owners Real Betis.

Nearly two years on and he is yet to make his Watford bow in any form and he spent another year in A Coruna last season, this time on loan from Watford, and now a third has been agreed in another temporary deal.

Deportivo have also announced they have reserved the option to make the transfer permanent by the end of 2016-17.

He has already made 69 league appearances for the club during his two years on loan, scoring twice.
