Stefano Okaka has completed a permanent transfer from Watford to Udinese.

The 30-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with the Serie A side, where he scored six goals in 16 appearances.

Okaka, who signed from Anderlecht in 2016, played just three times in all competitions for the Hornets in the first half of last season.

He scored in his opening game of the 2017/18 season but then went 14 league matches without a goal.

In Okaka's first season in the Premier League, he managed four goals in 20 appearances in all competitions.

Okaka last played in Italy for Sampdoria, having previously had spells at Parma, Bari, Brescia, Modena and Roma.
