Matej Vydra has left Watford for Reading while the Hornets have replaced him with Club Brugge forward Obbi Oulare.
Matej Vydra seems like he is destined to be a very good forward in the Championship who never really gets much of a chance to show what he can do in the Premier League. Despite Watford's failures in front of net so far this season, Vydra never got a significant chance to perform and now he moves back down to the Championship where he has been prolific in two different spells for Watford. Coming in as Vydra leaves is Belgian forward Obbi Oulare who arrives from Club Brugge to fight for playing time although at 19-years-old, Oulare is likely one for the future.

Matej Vydra helped fire Watford to the Premier League last season with 16 goals and as a reward, the 22-year-old has had his loan made permanent.

The notion of a "permanent" switch between Watford and Udinese is a little odd since the two clubs are both owned by the Pozzo family. Any funds changing hands are probably a little meaningless. What is more important is whether Vydra is ready to make an impact at the Premier League level. He failed to impress for West Brom on loan in the 2013-14 season but has scored 36 goals in two Championship seasons for Watford. Given his youth, it isn't unreasonable to think he could be ready to take a step up along with his side.

Matej Vydra's late equalizer earned West Brom a point against Fulham in a 1-1 draw.

Vydra netted home a Victory Anichebe cross in the 75th minute to save the day. Fulham had taken the lead in the 28th minute through Ashkan Dejagah but it wasn't enough to win the game. New Fulham manager Felix Magath should be happy with his team's first game as a point away from home is a decent result for a last place team. Both teams remain in the relegation battle and will need to start winning soon if they want a shot out.

West Bromwich Albion got a late goal from Matej Vydra to level the match with Hull City and the Baggies would hang on to grab a point in a 1-1 final.

After spending most of the season sitting on the sidelines, Vydra has been given a run out by Keith Downing late in games recently, and Vydra has repayed the manager's faith with an assist against Manchester City and a goal today, all in the space of about 50 minutes of pitch time. Downing is looking for offense wherever he can get it as WBA are coming off goalless matches against Norwich and Cardiff. To be fair, the Baggies showed excellent teamwork in the buildup to the Czech striker's goal and should use it as inspiration going forward. There are no prospects to recommend from Albion when they travel to face Spurs next on Boxing Day.
