Watford's 'Mr Consistency' since arriving from Stoke City in January 2008 for the bargain fee of 250k.


A central cog in Aidy Boothroyd's final Watford side, Eustace was favoured less by his replacement, Brendan Rodgers.



Sent out on-loan to Derby County by Rodgers, Eustace returned to the Vic' on the last day of the 2008/09 season to score against the 'Orns in a 3-1 defeat for the Rams.



Rodgers' departure did not immediately see Eustace curry favour with new boss Malky Mackay, though after agreeing to waive a bonus, the Solihull-born midfielder became an integral part of the Scot's team before taking the captaincy.



'Scorer' of the famed 'ghost goal' against Reading, Eustace looked set to leave in 2010 only to snub the advances of Leeds United on a free transfer and sign a new three-year deal.



Contract until June 30 2013.
