Hornets boss Aidy Boothroyd, who recently committed himself to the club until 2010, was a big influence on King's decision to sign. 'Aidy has given me the opportunity to show what I am capable of as a player and I have done my very best to repay the faith shown in me. The fact he has been prepared to sign for the club for a long time meant an awful lot to me.', said King.

King, who has forged a lethal strike-partnership with Ashley Young, believes he can reach the upper echelon of English football with the Hertfordshire-based club.

I believe that I will be doing so in the very near future wearing the colours of Watford', the twenty-five year-old forward told the club's official website.

King was initially signed from Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan with an Option to Buy clause, Forest will receive Ł500,000 for the former Gillingham forward.
