Hornets land United youngster

18 August 2009 08:22
Watford have bolstered their squad with the signing of Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley on loan until January. Cleverley spent the second half of last season on loan at Leicester City and has now been allowed out again by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to gain further first-team experience. Ferguson admitted earlier this month that he faced a dilemma regarding Cleverley's future after the 20-year-old scored in the friendly win over Valencia. The United chief was debating whether to send the England Under 20 international out on loan after revealing Premier League clubs had shown an interest. He has now decided to let Cleverley play Championship football for the next few months after agreeing a deal with Malky Mackay's Watford. Cleverley could make his debut for the Hornets on Tuesday night when Mackay takes his squad to Nottingham Forest.
