Udinese defender Thomas Heurtaux is set to leave the club, with newly-promoted English side Watford the likely destination for the Frenchman.

Next season the Hornets will play in the Premier League for the first time since 2006/07 and are also owned by the Pozzo family that are in charge at the Stadio Friuli as well as Spanish outfit Granada.

Reported by Tuttomercatoweb.com, the 25-year-old was subject of a bid from Lyon in recent days that was rejected by the Zebrette, but it appears that a departure is set in stone as the Pozzo family re-arrange their playing assets.

Indeed, it would not be the first transfer between the two clubs, with Almen Abdi and Matej Vyrda among those who have moved from north-east Italy to the Hertfordshire side, while promising youngster Carl Stewart moved in the opposite direction in January 2015.
