Andrew Eleftheriou has become the second Watford Under-23 player to leave on loan this January after joining Braintree Town.

The 21-year-old defender follows goalkeeper Sam Howes, who moved to Eastbourne Borough, and has made the temporary move to the National League side until the end of this season.

The full-back made his first-team debut against Manchester City at the end of the 2016/17 season and gained experience overseas earlier this year during a loan stint with Norwegian side Sandefjord.
