Serbian defender Vujadin Savic has today joined Watford on a deal until the end of the season.


The 24 year old defender had been on trial at Vicarage Road, after being released by Bordeaux in the summer, playing a part in the Under 21 teams 6-1 victory over Leeds two weeks ago.


The Watford Observer reported last week that they understood that Savic was set to sign a short term deal until the end of the season, and Watford have now announced his arrival.


Savic started off his career in his homeland, coming through the ranks at Red Star Belgrade. He spent time on loan at Rad Beograd making 25 appearances during, before making his break through at Red Star Belgrade during the 2009-10 season, making 17 appearances.


His impressive form earned him a move to French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux in 2010. He made 7 appearances during his first season at the club, scoring once. However, his second season wasn’t so successful, as he was restricted to one appearance all season during the 2011-12 campaign.


He went on loan to Dynamo Dresden for the second half of the 2011-12 season, and also spent the whole of the 2012-13 season with the German outfit, making 33 appearances in total during his loan spells at the club.


Savic was released by Bordeaux in the summer after making 11 appearances in four years and has been without a club since.


He has been capped by Serbia at Under 19 and Under 21 level, and also featured in the Europa League last season for Bordeaux.


After impressing on trial at Watford, the Hornets staff have seen enough of the 6ft 4 defender to hand him a contract until the end of the season.


It would appear if he does well, then the deal could then be extended in the summer, and Savic will add to Slavisa Jokanovic’s defensive options.


Welcome to Watford Vujadin!!!!
