 Watford have named Javi Gracia as their new head coach, hours after the Premier League club sacked Marco Silva.

Spaniard Gracia, who has signed an 18-month contract at Vicarage Road, has been out of work since leaving Russian club Rubin Kazan last June.

The 47-year-old previously spent two seasons with Spanish La Liga side Malaga, and also worked in Greece.

Gracia is the 10th manager to work for Watford under the Pozzo family since 2012.

He says restoring confidence will be one of his first tasks.

"The team has played some good matches this season and I think they can do it again," he told the club website.

"It's not easy arriving in the middle of the season, but you must be ready and I am grateful and have plenty of energy to win the rest of the matches.

"It is a big challenge, but it is also a dream."

Watford said Everton's approach for Silva in November was the "catalyst" for their decision to sack him.

He was the eighth Premier League manager to lose his job this season, following changes at Crystal Palace, Everton, Leicester City, Stoke, Swansea, West Brom and West Ham.
