Watford’s 30-year-old left back Daniel Pudil has completed his permanent move to Sheffield Wednesday after last season’s loan spell at Hillsborough, the Championship side have announced on their Twitter page.
The Czech Republic international has 31 caps for his national side, and played 42 games as Sheffield Wednesday stormed to the Play-Off final, where they agonisingly lost to a Steve Bruce led Hull City.
Pudil clearly impressed manager Carlos Carvalhal, and with just one year remaining on his Watford contract, and the Hornets looking to replace him with a better quality player, the Owls swooped in to bring the Czech back to Sheffield, but this time on a permanent basis.
The former Granada and Genk defender signed alongside Almen Abdi, who also arrives from Watford, and the double signing will be seen as a statement of intent from Carlos Carvalhal, who will be hoping that Pudil and Abdi can lead his side to promotion.
Sheffield Wednesday fans…What do you make of the news? Is Pudil a good signing for your side? Do you think you can better last season’s achievements and be promoted to the Premier League? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
