Watford defender Ben Wilmot has joined Serie A club Udinese on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
The 19-year-old has made six appearances for Watford this season, starting four cup games and coming off the bench in two Premier League matches.
Wilmot, who has represented England at youth level, was a second-half substitute in Watford's last league outing in the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham at Wembley on Wednesday.
The centre-back began his career at Stevenage before moving to Watford on a five-year deal last summer.
His loan move makes him the third Watford player to join sister club Udinese in the January transfer window, with both clubs owned by the Pozzo family.
Earlier on Deadline Day, Sky Sports News reported Tom Huddlestone was in talks with Udinese over a permanent move.
