Marco Silva added guile to Watford's midfield with the signing of Will Hughes from Derby County on Saturday.

The 22-year-old is one of the most celebrated products to progress from the Rams' academy in recent years, and has been a mainstay in the Championship since the beginning of the 2012-13 campaign. Across all competitions he's made nearly 190 club appearances since his 2011 debut aged 16.

Hughes inked a five-year contract at Vicarage Road, and BBC Sport reports the Hornets parted with £8 million for his services.

Hughes is set to complete the formality of his Watford medical when he returns from representing England at the European Under-21 Championship in Poland.
