Asked whether he would return to Vicarage Road next season, Battocchio replied: ‘Yes, yes.’
Battocchio, 21, has also taken to Twitter to confirm his return to Watford whilst confirming his presence on the club’s pre-season training camp in northern Italy.
The Italian Under-20 international was one of the few players yet to confirm his return to the club for pre-season, but the Udinese midfielder has also confirmed that he will join the Hornets next season, though it is not yet known whether that deal will be permanent or as a loanee.
