Watford have confirmed that they have signed Danny Welbeck on a free transfer.
The England international was released by Arsenal in July after five years at the Emirates during which he scored 32 goals in 126 appearances.
His spell in N5 was marred by three serious injuries. He suffered two ACL injuries in the space of a year and missed much of last season after he suffered a horrible ankle break against Sporting Lisbon in November.
It wasn’t all doom and gloom though. In March 2015 he got on the scoresheet in a very satisfying FA Cup win against former club Manchester United at Old Trafford.

And, on his return from his first big knee injury on on Valentine’s Day 2016, he netted a last-gasp stoppage time headed winner against Leicester City that sent the Emirates absolutely bonkers. Good times.
Danny was a very popular figure in the dressing room and on the terraces and seems like one of the game’s good guys. We wish him the best at Watford.
Hopefully, his cojones will have grown back enough to satisfy Troy Deeney. *Cough*
