Watford striker Stefano Okaka has completed a loan move to Udinese, with the Italian club confirming the switch this afternoon.

The Italian striker made 39 appearances for Watford in two and a half seasons, scoring five goals.

However, he has found game time extremely limited this campaign and the loan move offers the 29-year-old the chance to get some first team action.

Udinese technical director, Daniele Prade said: "Okaka is strong physically, good at defending the ball and getting the team up. He is strong in the air and inside the penalty area."

Okaka will join fellow Hornet Marvin Zeegelaar, who is also expected to join the Italian club before the end of the January transfer window.
