Their have been two pieces of transfer news today. Firslty, 24 year old striker Joe Garner has today joined league 1 side Preston North End on a free transfer. He has been given an 18 month contract. He joined Watford on summer transfer deadline day 2011 by former manger Sean Dyche on a undisclosed fee. He scored one goal for the Hornets in 27 appearences. Garner never really found his scoring touch for the Hornets although Watford fans did see some glimpses of what he can do. He fell down the pecking order during the summer because of the influx of new signings.  This meant that he was sent on loan to Carlisle scoring 8 times.

In another piece of transfer news, Lee Hodson has extended his stay at league one side Brentford until the end of the season.
