Penaranda pens Hornets deal
Adalberto Penaranda has signed a new five-year contract with Watford after receiving his work permit.
The 21-year-old forward's deal will run up until 2023 and, after processing the required paperwork, he will now be available for competitive action.
Penaranda, who started his career in his home country with Deportivo La Guaira, joined Watford in February 2016 and has since spent time on loan with Granada, Udinese and Malaga.
With Granada, Penaranda broke Lionel Messi's record as the youngest foreign player to score a brace in La Liga, and he Hornets have high hopes he will be a success.
Penaranda can play out wide or through the middle, and will offer another option to Hornets boss Javi Gracia.
The forward has made 13 senior international appearances and helped Venezuela reach the 2017 Under-20 World Cup final, which they lost to England.
