Watford have signed Southampton defender Chris Baird on a month's loan.

The 21-year-old Northern Ireland international will make his debut in the game at Ipswich on Saturday.

Hornets' boss Ray Lewington said: "He's a very welcome addition. I tried to get him earlier in the season when we didn't have injuries.

"He plays with energy and enthusiasm, gets stuck in, gets forward and is the type of player I like," he told the club website,

Baird shot to fame when he made only his second start for the Saints in last year's FA Cup final and has spent time on loan at Walsall this season.
