Watford Seal The Deal For This Exciting English Star: Can He Be The Game Changer For Silva?

Watford have been under tremendous pressure from their fans to perform in the forthcoming season after finishing their Premier League campaign in the last term on the brink of elimination from top flight football, right in the 17th position on the League table. The Hornets are looking to bring in players who have been performing well for their respective teams in the summer transfer window and have made their first major breakthrough by signing Will Hughes from the Championship side Derby County.

The 22-year-old midfielder has been one of the highest-rated young players in the country and has a good future ahead of him. He is sure to enrich his skills under the careful tutelage of Watford’s new manager Marco Silva, who was appointed in place of their former head coach Walter Mazzari, sacked as an aftermath of the disastrous season the Hornets had in their last Premier League term.

Hughes has been playing for Derby County since the age of 16 and has proved to be one of the best players in the outfit for so long. He has scored 12 goals so far for his former club and has featured in 165 games for the Rams so far in the Championship. Now that he is in top flight football, it will be a great chance for him to showcase his skills as a player and make the most of the opportunities that will be handed to him, as he will be facing some of the best players in the world in matches against some of the best teams in Europe like Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and current champions Chelsea in the next season.

Reportedly, the youngster has been signed for a deal of £8 million, which will see him stay at Vicarage Road for the next five years.

Hughes is known for his running down the middle of the pitch with and without the ball, as well as finding the right player at the right moment. He has the capability to score from long distance as well as from close range and is equally good from set piece situations as well as open play. He also is known for his pinpoint passes that create opportunities for his teammates to score goals and put his team in an advantageous position.

It goes without saying that the 22-year-old is going to be a good addition to the roster for the Hornets and hopefully he will help them to revive their game in the next term.
