Watford secure Loach until 2012

Watford secure Loach until 2012

Watford have warned off interest from a host of Premier League big boys (and Man City) by signing up Scott Loach on a new contract until 2012.

The Hornet`s England U21 goalkeeper capped a dream season by agreeing an extension on his contract which will see him stay between the sticks at Vicarage Road for the next 3 years - despite interest from the likes of Liverpool, Newcastle and Spurs to name but 3.

Loach had 15 months left to run on his initial deal but Brendan Rodgers has been so impressed with the Young Lion in his 35 appearances this season that he has rewarded the former Lincoln trainee with improved terms.

But it`s all come as a bit of shock even to Scott - who let`s not forget was shoved out on loan to Stafford, Morecambe and Bradford 12 months - and he revealed "I didn`t expect to be signing a new contract this season".

He added "…we are going to go far and to be part of that makes me feel so wanted - I`m over the moon".

Ah bless.

A great signing and at last a goal keeper that i think can be better than Tony Coton & Andy Rankin, all the best to him, Maybe a farewell to Lee and most certainly Poom at the end of the season

strange that there's plenty of fans who don't rate the bg fella isn't it when he has learnt his trade well this year given the shocking state of the back 4 at times. As good as Coton and Rankin? Only time will tell but I know he is better than David James was at a similar age.

Hi Dr, Perhaps i should have said Potential, but thats how high i regard him, he has the agility of Rankin for covering the goal line and the physic of Cotton, I have read comments from others who do not rate him and then when you read other comments that they have made, they really do know little about anything lol

Good signing. He's a great young keeper who can only get better, but we need to keep things in perspective, eg he's not in the same class as Ben Foster. However neither are we!
