Sordell has been in prolific form so far for the Hornets after banging in five goals, and the 19-year-old striker has penned a new deal at the club as a return for his part in helping Malky Mackay's side sit third in the Championship.

The former Fulham youth performer was under contract until the end of the next season but the new deal will keep him a Vicarage Road until the summer of 2013 and Mackay is enthralled to have tied down the young front man.

The Watford boss told the club's official website: "I'm delighted that Marvin and his family think Watford is the best place for his development, in the care of myself and my staff.

"Sean Dyche worked with him at youth level, I worked with him while he was in the reserves and we're both been keen to nurture his talent carefully.

"Marvin certainly matured on loan at Tranmere last season and he was all the better for the experience.

"He's a credit to himself, for the way he has developed his own game and I'm very pleased that we've secured his services for another two years."
