Watford sporting director Luke Dowling has praised the business completed by the club in the summer transfer window.

The Hornets were the busiest of all Premier League sides in terms of incomings, signing fifteen new players in order to strengthen their promoted side.

Club chief Dowling is confident manager Quique Sanchez Flores has enough new talent at his disposal to achieve Premier League survival, and believes players are more inclined to join Watford under the tutelage of owner Gino Pozzo.

“We’ve submitted the 25-man squad, and when you look at the players we’ve got in each position, as a club we’re delighted with what we’ve done,” Dowling exclusively told Hornets PlayerHD.

“We’ve got some really good new players into this football club, along with the players we already had. We’ve got strength in depth in each position and we’ve got real quality there, which we really think can go and push on now.

“Even the signings we made on the last day, it has all been ongoing for the last three or four weeks,” added¬†Dowling.

“We managed to get them over the line on the last day just through negotiating with the individual or the club they were coming from.

“The planning was certainly in place and the players were identified, and it just took that length of time to get them finalised.

“I think players, especially from Europe, understand what Gino Pozzo is all about in terms of what he’s done at other clubs, and they understand what he is trying to put in place here.

“The way we look after players and the way we’re trying to play are big selling points, as is being in the Premier League.”
