    Marco Silva Is Watford's New Manager

    Hull City v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

    Former Hull City boss Marco Silva is understood to have agreed to become the new Watford manager, just days after he left his position at the KCOM. 

    It was largely expected that the Portuguese would leave Humberside following the Tigers' relegation from the Premier League. Having announced his decision to depart the club, Silva has wasted little time in deciding his next move as ​Sky Sports report that he has reached an agreement with Watford to fill the vacant managerial role at Vicarage Road.

    Silva will take charge of the Hornets as of July 1st, when the new season theoretically begins and the transfer window officially opens. 

    Sky suggest that an announcement confirming Silva's appointment as Watford manager will likely be announced by the club within the next 24 hours. 

    Watford v Manchester City - Premier League

    The Hornets recently terminated the contract of previous head coach Walter Mazzarri, despite the Italian guiding the team to safety from relegation. 

    Watford finished the season just one place above the bottom three with 40 points, however, a disappointing end to the campaign led to Mazzarri being shown the door. 

    Silva only has five months experience of the Premier League having been appointed manager of Hull back in mid-January. 

    Despite boasting an impressive home record with the Tigers, the 39-year-old was unable to keep them in the top flight as their relegation was confirmed by a 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in the penultimate game of the season. 

    Prior to his short spell with Hull, Silva has spent time managing Portuguese side Estoril, Sporting Lisbon and Greek giants Olympiakos.
