Watford have signed Jordan Stewart and Martin Devaney.Watford have begun rebuilding following the sale of Heidar Helguson by signing Jordan Stewart and Martin Devaney.
Stewart has joined on a three-year contract for £125,000 from Leicester while Devaney has joined from Cheltenham for free.
Stewart, 23, sees joining Watford as the ideal opportunity to re-start his career and is looking forward to working under manager Adrian Boothroyd.
"It's a new start for me," said Stewart to the club's official website. "Watford are an up-and-coming club.
"When I met the manager a few weeks ago I knew he had the same ambitions as me - we want to go to the same place which is The Premiership.
"The gaffer wants an attacking team and that's how I see myself - I like getting forward and creating things for the forwards.
"I'm still young at 23 and I think I can further my career here - the whole point for us is to be in The Premiership and I feel we can achieve it."
Devaney has arrived hot-on-the-heels of Stewart, with the 25-year-old signing a one-year contract with the Vicarage Road club.
Boothroyd believes Devaney has the skills required to make an impact on the team this season.
"Martin's a skilful midfielder and suits the style of football I want us to play next season," he added.
"He'll be a good addition to the squad and brings good qualities to our team."
