WATFORD have unveiled Sean Dyche as their new manager, following the departure of Malky Mackay from Vicarage Road.

Dyche, 39, steps up from his position as assistant manager, and will now proceed with the task of appointing his coaching staff.

Mackay had earlier replaced Dave Jones at Cardiff City, after two years in charge of the Hornets.

Cardiff will pay Watford compensation, estimated to be around £300,000, for the services of Mackay.

New manager Dyche – a former Watford player – will have to make do without the services of last season’s top scorer Danny Graham, who has left the club to join Premier League new boys Swansea City for a fee of £3.5m.
