Watford head coach Javi Gracia will be ambitious with the players he has at his disposal and does not anticipate adding to his squad "in this moment".

Fringe striker Stefano Okaka completed his temporary switch to Udinese earlier this week, while defender Marvin Zeegelaar has also joined the Serie A club.

There has also been speculation surrounding the future of the in-form Abdoulaye Doucoure, but Gracia does not currently envisage any players arriving at Vicarage Road this month.

"In this moment, maybe different things happen, but I am happy with the squad I have," said Gracia.

"With the players we have we can complete a very good season and if in one week something changes, we will see.

"But at the moment I prefer to value the players I have because they deserve that. We have to be demanding with the players and we have to be ambitious with them, too."

Okaka joined Watford from Anderlecht in the summer of 2016, but has fallen out of favour under Gracia, featuring in just three matches this season, all of them as substitutes, prior to his loan switch.

"In my opinion, Stefano is a great player and a great person," Gracia added.

"He was very important for the squad, not just for the minutes he played, but other things.

"However, the club, the player, and me, thought it was better to take this step and go on loan for the rest of the season.

"In his position there are many strikers and many options, so it was better for all of us to take this decision."
