Watford new boy Damien Francis has said that boss Aidy Boothroyd was a big factor in his decision to sign for the Golden Boys.
"After speaking to Aidy I became totally convinced by what his plans are for the club," the 1.5 £million but from Wigan told the club`s official site.
"There were one or two available options for me but I spoke with Aidy and some of the players, and hearing what he has already done here I just wanted to be part of it. He's quite a character, I've heard lot about what he does on and off the training pitch and I can't wait to get started," said the 27-year-old.
Of Aidy Boothroyd`s coaching methods, the South Londoner commented: "He's very 'new school' and I know I'm going to enjoy it, even the hard work. Like Aidy, I want to move the club on and move myself on. In the way Aidy works, I know that can happen."
The Watford supremo has repeatedly stressed the culture of young, hungry players that is now prevalent at the club and Jamaican international appears to fit that billing. "I'm definitely hungry to succeed at Watford and in the Premier League," enthused Francis. "I've got belief in my own ability and I know what I can do. This is another opportunity to show that.
"Central midfield is where I have always played and will continue to play. I enjoy scoring goals and that's a part of my game I want to improve yet still. Aidy knows me from my Norwich days and he knows what I am capable of and I just want to improve and do well for him."
Francis concluded: "These are exciting times for Watford, with our young squad especially, who are a really talented bunch. If we stick together we can not only do something this year but in the future too."
