Watford sign Damien Francis

Watford sign Damien Francis

Watford have signed Damien Francis from Wigan Athletic on a three-year deal for a fee that could rise up to £1.5 million.

"Damien adds a lot of strength to our central midfield area," Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd told the official site.

"I knew Damien from my time at Norwich and he's a professional right to the end," Boothroyd said of the 27-year-old South Londoner. "Things have not happened for him at Wigan and that sometimes happens at some clubs, but I think that we're right for him and he's right for us.".

"He's a £2m player and the fact that we've got him for the money we have is a real coup for us. Damien now, has got the opportunity to fight for a first-team place and help us climb the Premiership like we climbed the Championship," added Aidy.

The Jamaican international made a total of 24 Premiership appearances for the Latics in the maiden top-flight season last term, after arriving from Norwich City for £2 million in the summer of 2005.
