Claudio Ranieri has confirmed that Watford have signed midfielder Edo Kayembe from KAS Eupen.

Speaking before the FA Cup match against Leicester City, the head coach revealed that the Congolese international was his third signing of the January window, along with Samir and Hassane Kamara.

The Italian believes all three will help improve his side, but is not sure if they will be available for this weekend's trip to the King Power Stadium.

"Let me speak with them because during Christmas they didn’t train and then I want to speak with them to choose if it’s good," he said. "They are involved with the team and after I will decide.

"They are experienced players, two left footers and I think their personality could improve all the team.

"There is also Kayembe, the midfielder, he’s another left footer, he's strong. These three new players can improve the team."

One person Ranieri confirmed would play no further part for him is Danny Rose, who has been told he will no longer play for the Hornets.

The full back is currently training alone with Watford while assessing his options.

Ranieri said it was a "technical" decision to move Rose on and said the club would help him find a new opportunity elsewhere.

"It was a technical decision and now we will try to do the best for him," continued the head coach. "Danny is a professional man and a fantastic man, we will train him and look for the best solution for him, we are very happy to help him.

"I don’t know (why it hasn’t worked) I prefer other kinds of players, he’s a good man, a good player, but I decided it’s much better to change something."
