Watford have announced four pre-season friendlies as they continue their preparations for life in the Premier League.

While next season officially kicks off on August 14, the Hornets will be playing four matches between July 24 and August 7.

First they will be hosting recently relegated side West Bromwich Albion at Vicarage Road on Saturday, July 24 before travelling to Stevenage three days later for their only away fixture of pre-season.

They will then conclude their friendlies with a home match against Nantes on Saturday, July 31, in which new signing Imran Louza will go up against his former club, before hosting fellow Pozzo-owned club Udinese on Saturday, August 7.

The likes of Gerard Deulofeu, Roberto Pereyra and Stefano Okaka could all play a part at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets are also set to face Colchester United at Watford's London Colney training ground prior to the announced fixtures.

Meanwhile, the Premier League schedule will be announced on the morning of Wednesday, June 16.
