Watford sign Danny Shittu

Watford have completed the signing of QPR defender Danny Shittu for a fee of 1.6 million which could rise to 3million depending on appearances and further Watford success.

The Nigerian international had looked set to join Championship outfit West Brom after the Baggies had a bid of 1.5million accepted by the West Londoners. However, Watford`s improved offer of 1.6million secured the services of the much sought-after centre-half.

Watford supremo Aidy Boothroyd was quick to praise Rangers` Player of the Season for 2005/06, someone who he feels will fit into the Vicarage Road culture. "In Danny we're signing another player who fits the Watford way - hungry to learn, and eager to prove his worth at the very, very top level against the best," Aidy told the club`s official site.

"He is somebody that we have been chasing for some time and I'm pleased that he will now have the chance to fight for a place along with the other excellent centre-halves we have at the club."

The 25-year-old, who joins Premiership Watford on a three-year-deal, could make his Watford debut in the glamour friendly against Italian giants Inter Milan on Tuesday.

3million seems a lot for an average Championship player

Well done on signing Danny. He was a great signing for the Pool, albeit as a loanee. And all the best in the Premiership this season.

I think the fee may rise to 3m. I'm not convinced but hopefully it will be another Aidy masterstroke
