Watford sign defender Williamson

Mike Williamson
Williamson made 165 appearances for Wycombe, including 21 this season

Watford have signed Wycombe Wanderers centre-back Mike Williamson for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal at Vicarage Road.

Wycombe manager Peter Taylor told the club's website: "Mike was out of contract in the summer and expressed a desire to play in the Championship.

"I am obviously disappointed to lose him but I would like to thank him for his efforts and I hope it turns out to be a good move for him."

Williamson began his career as a trainee with Torquay United before joining Southampton in 2001.

After failing to break into the first-team at St Mary's, he moved to Adams Park in May 2005 and went on to make more than 150 appearances for Wanderers, playing 21 times this season.

League One side Colchester - managed by ex-Wycombe boss Paul Lambert - had a bid for the player rejected earlier this month.
