Watford have announced that Hector Bellerin’s loan spell with the club has been cut short and he’s been recalled by Arsenal.

The young Spaniard joined the Hornets on a short-term basis in November, but last month it was announced that he’d spend the rest of the season at Vicarage Road.
While it raises fears that one of the senior right backs has suffered a problem, it could be because of the injury sustained by Tafari Moore in last night’s U21 2-1 defeat to Reading.
However, that would seem somewhat self-defeating as the purpose of his loan was to gain valuable first team experience.
Bellerin made 9 appearances in his spell at Watford, the last of which came on Feb 11th.
