Watford have confirmed a deal has been agreed to sign Brazilian youngster Joao Pedro.

We reported earlier this month the Fluminense teenager had passed a medical with the Hornets, who have tonight confirmed Pedro’s five-year contract will start on January 1, 2020 once he has turned 18.

Pedro will become the second player to move to Vicarage Road from the Brazilian club following Richarlison's transfer in the summer of 2017.
