Former Hull City boss Marco Silva has agreed terms with Watford to become the club’s new manager.
The Hornets parted company with Walter Mazzarri after a dissapointing season in the Premier League.
However, the club haven’t taken any chances when it came to appointing the Italian’s successor as they have immediately jumped at the chance to bring in the highly-rated Silva.
The Portuguese replaced Steve Bruce halfway through last season and very nearly kept the Tigers in the division with a string of impressive performances.
In fact Silva was so impressive during his short spell at the KC Stadium, that Gary Neville insisted the ex-Sporting Lisbon coach was bound for a top job in England.
And Twitter appeared very impressed as it was announced Watford have convinced Silva to stay in the top flight of English football:

I can't think of a Premier League club less appealing than Watford, so they've done remarkably well to convince Marco Silva to go there.

Will Silva be able to replicate the success he had at Hull with his new team?
Or should the 39-year-old have held out for an offer from a more stable side?
