Watford Two signing announced

The loan signing of the Watford Two has just been confirmed by Hereford United.

As expected both Theo Robinson and Toumani Diagouraga will join until the end of the year when the next transfer window opens. Profiles of the two players are from Wikipedia:

Theo Robinson (born 22 January 1989 in Birmingham, England) is a professional footballer who is with Watford.

A graduate of Watford's Youth Academy, Robinson was an unused substitute in Watford's victory over Ipswich Town on 17 April 2006. Five days later, he made his first team debut against Queens Park Rangers, coming on as a half-time substitute for Darius Henderson. He signed his first professional contract with Watford on the 1 February 2007, and, in the same month, went on a months loan to Wealdstone. His loan was later extended until the end of the season with Robinson's goals helping to keep Wealdstone in the Southern Football League Premier Division. On Sunday 13th May 2007, he made his Premiership debut as a second-half substitute in Watford's final game of the season, at home to Newcastle. On 8th August Robinson and his teammate Toumani Diagouraga both joined Hereford United on loan in League 2 until Christmas.

Toumani Diagouraga (born 9 June 1987) is a French central midfielder also with Watford.

Having been spotted by a Watford scout in Paris, Diagouraga signed for Watford's Academy. He signed professional terms in November 2004 aged just 17 after he was reportedly scouted by Premiership clubs. He made his first team debut in a League Cup victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 20 September 2005. He went on to make another three starts for the club before signing for Swindon Town on loan in March 2006, where he performed impressively.

At the January 2007 transfer window, Diagouraga was loaned to Rotherham for the remainder of the season. On 8th August 2007 he was loaned out to Hereford United in League 2 until Christmas with a view to a longer deal. His first game of the season is against Rotherham United FC.
