Former Watford winger Chris Eagles has joined Dutch outfit NEC Nijmegen on loan.
The Manchester United wideman spent four months on-loan at Vicarage Road during the 2004-05 season and then rejoined the Hornets on a temporary basis following a loan-spell with Sheffield Wednesday.
Eagles - who was a product of the youth Academy before joining Manchester United as a teenager - made his second Watford 'debut` in the high-octane local derby with archrivals Luton Town a Kenilworth Road in January.
The 20-year-old scored Watford`s Goal of the Season last campaign, a stunning Beckham-esque 50-yard lob of the goalkeeper against Brighton at the Withdean Stadium.
Hemel-Hempstead-born Eagles - who played for the Golden Boys 19 times during his second spell - was dropped in favour of James Chambers for the play-off semi-finals and final and returned to Old Trafford when his Vicarage Road loan-dell expired in the summer.
It is interesting that Boothroyd never attempted to re-sign Eagles on loan for Watford`s 2006/07 Premiership adventure; however, it has been questioned whether he has the ability to cut the mustard in the top-flight of English football, let alone at Manchester United.
Eagles will now spend four months with the Dutch Eredivisie outfit.
