Watford have signed Lewis McGugan on a free transfer after his contract at Nottingham Forest expired at the end of the season.
The creative playmaking midfielder has signed a three-year deal with the Hornets with the option of an additional fourth year, subject to his final medical clearance.
The 24-year-old has been part of the Nottingham Forest set-up his whole career, having made his senior debut in 2006, becoming a fans' favourite for his spectacular long-range goals.
His move comes after over 200 games for Forest, having scored 44 goals in that time, and will he join Gianfranco Zola's side despite reported interest from several other clubs.
McGugan's arrival at Vicarage Road marks the second signing of this transfer window for the Hornets, and he will travel out to Italy immediately to join the rest of the team as part of the club's pre-season preparations.
