Watford have confirmed that Joshua King and Rob Elliot have left the club ahead of their 2022/23 season in the Championship.
King (30) joined Watford last summer following a brief spell at Everton during the 2020/21 campaign.
The ex-AFC Bournemouth forward netted five goals in 33 appearances as Watford were relegated down to the Championship.
Watford have also announced that former Newcastle goalkeeper Elliot has left after spending 17 months at Vicarage Road.
Elliott’s only senior appearance came in the Carabao Cup against Stoke last September.
“We wish both players well for the future,” sporting director Cristiano Giaretta told the club website.
“In the case of Rob, he indicated he would wish to consider retirement but the decision is his now, of course.
“We are continuing to consider our options for the third goalkeeper and we need to make sensible choices with the rule of 11 to consider.”
