Jose Manuel Jurado leaves Watford for Espanyol

Watford have confirmed the departure of midfielder Jose Manuel Jurado to Espanyol.

The Spaniard, 30, signed for the Hornets from Spartak Moscow in July 2015.

Jurado made 30 appearances for Watford, but is no longer in the first-team plans of incoming manager Walter Mazzarri.

A statement on the Watford website read: " The Hornets can confirm that José Manuel Jurado has today completed a permanent transfer to Espanyol..... All at Watford FC wish José well for the future."

Watford have brought in several new signings as they prepare for life after Quique Sanchez Flores, who kept the Hertfordshire club up in his first season and also reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Belgium international Christian Kabasele, Jerome Sinclair from Liverpool and forward Isaac Success have all come into Vicarage Road, while striker Troy Deeney has ended speculation about his future by signing a new five-year contract.
