Watford have bolstered their strike options by signing Aston Villa youngster Andreas Weimann on loan until the end of the season.The Austria Under-21 forward has made two first-team appearances at Villa, coming off the bench in the Premier League and in the Europa League.

The 19-year-old has recently recovered from an ankle ligament injury which ruled him out for four months.

Villa have included a 24-hour recall clause in the deal.

The Villa academy product scored nine times for the Midlands side's reserves last season.

He now has the opportunity to strengthen Watford's play-off hopes, with the Hornets sixth in the Championship.
