Watford midfielder Piero Mingoia has joined Boreham Wood on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old will link up with his cousin Mario Noto as he looks to try and help Wood win promotion from the Conference South.

Mingoia made his first-team debut for Watford in January 2011 and the youngster had a spell on loan at Accrington Stanley earlier this season. 

Wood boss Ian Allinson told the club website: “We really are delighted to capture the signing of Piero from Watford on a long term loan.

"He is an exciting young prospect, who we’ve known about for years and we’ve followed his career closely.

"When his services became available to us on loan, we didn’t hesitate as he will be a great addition to our squad and will I’m sure contribute to our promotion push.”
