Stefano Okaka has joined Udinese from premier league club side Watford on a six-month loan deal for the Italian international.
The 29-year-old joins after falling down the pecking order at the Hornets with the club also owned by the Pozzo family and has been at the Premier League club since 2016 making 34 appearances and scoring just four goals.
He returns back to Italy since leaving Sampdoria in 2014/15 season for Anderlecht and played for Parma and his youth club Roma.
“Okaka is a strong point physically, good at defending the ball and getting the team up,” Udinese technical director Daniel Prade told the club’s website.
“Stefano is strong in the air and inside the penalty area.”
