Watford have completed the signing of Udinese goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis on a season-long loan deal.
The Greek international, who has made 109 appearances for Udinese since arriving from Granada in 2014, will join Marco Silva's squad following the international break.
Karnenzis was named Greek Best Goalkeeper in 2011-12 during his six-year spell at Olympiakos, where he played 59 games in all competitions.
The 32-year old will compete with Heurelho Gomes for the starting place at Vicarage Road.
Karnenzis' arrival is the Hornets' 11th signing of the transfer window after the club-record signing of Andre Gray from Burnley earlier this month.
Silva has also secured the services of Tom Cleverly, Will Hughes, Nathan Chalobah and Richarlison this summer as the club look to improve on last season's 17th-placed finish.
