Winger McAnuff signs for Watford
Jobi McAnuff
McAnuff scored five league goals last season
Watford have completed the signing of winger Jobi McAnuff from Crystal Palace in a deal worth up to 2m.

The 25-year-old has signed a three-year contract with Watford, who have paid Palace an initial 1.75m, rising if the Hornets are promoted.

Watford manager Adrian Boothroyd said: "I have been after him for a long time. He is two-footed, can shoot, can cross, can make goals and can score goals.

"He knows the Championship division and he knows what is required to win."

McAnuff started 31 league matches for Palace last term, scoring five times.

Boothroyd added: "I think he has still got a lot more to come but he is athletic, he fits the bill and he is hungry enough to want to play in the Premiership.

"He's got a little bit more experience, he is a match winner and he is a different type of player for us."

McAnuff, who was also linked with newly-promoted Derby, is the third player to join Watford since their relegation from the Premiership.

Defender Matt Jackson and goalkeeper Mart Poom arrived earlier in the close-season.
