New Hornets deal for Bouazza

Hameur Bouazza has signed a new contract to stay at Watford until 2010.
The French forward has made nine Premiership appearances this season, with his only goal to date securing a draw at Wigan Athletic.
He has been rewarded for his promising displays by Hornets boss Adrian Boothroyd and is now tied to the club in the long term.
Bouazza's previous deal had been due to expire at the end of the season, but he will now stay at Vicarage Road.
Meanwhile, Bouazza's team-mate Gavin Mahon has urged everyone to perform to the same level as The Hornets chase a first Premiership win of the campaign.
Mahon feels the side have been carrying some players in the opening 10 games and is now keen for Watford to start producing results.
"The quality is there, but it is time to stop talking and start doing," said Mahon.
"In too many games, we have had four or five players producing seven, eight or nine-out-of-10 performances, and the rest of the team have just been getting through it.
"In this league, that is not good enough. You need to have eight or nine players on top of their game and then you can help one or two of the lads who are having a bad day.
"But you can't carry five or six, not in this standard of football."
