Well that's some statement! On the basis of 3 goals in 15 games, Watford have given a contract of 5.5 yeares to striker Fernando Forestieri. The Argentine is said to be delighted, and who can blame him? That is one hell of a contract for somebody who has not pulled up a forest of trees yet in the English game.
Zola should know better. A certain Herito Ilunga did enough at West Ham to earn a permanent contract whilst on loan, but once it was secured, he couldn't be arsed!
That said, this is exactly what was promised when a flood of players arrived at Watford on loan from Udinese. And with the Hornets buzzing merrily in a playoff place, you won't find many Watford fans complaining at the moment!
