Colombia forward Victor Ibarbo has signed for Watford on a season-long loan from Roma.

Ibarbo joined midfielder Adlene Guedioura and 19-year-old Belgian striker Obbi Oulare in moving to Vicarage Road on transfer deadline day.

The 25-year-old has spent seven months with Roma, having previously played for Cagliari.

Watford said on their official website: "Colombian international Victor Ibarbo has signed for Watford on a season-long loan, the Hornets are delighted to confirm."

Guedioura had two loan spells at Watford last season and returns on a permanent basis from Crystal Palace after signing a three-year deal.

The Algeria international joined Oulare at the Hornets after the Belgium Under-21 international agreed a five-year deal from Club Brugge.

Guedioura made 17 appearances and scored three goals in Watford's promotion-winning campaign last term.

Oulare came through the academy ranks at Lille in France before moving to Brugge in 2013, where he scored nine goals in 39 appearances.

Midfielder Miguel Layun earlier joined Porto on a season-long loan from Vicarage Road.

The Mexico international joined the Hornets in January, helping them to promotion to the top flight, but now could be in Champions League action with Porto.
