Watford have signed Danny Welbeck on a free transfer.

The striker has been without a club following his release from Arsenal at the end of last season, but has now signed at Vicarage Road.

The 28-year-old, who has won 42 caps for England, has seen his career ravaged by injury, but he is fit again after breaking his ankle playing for the Gunners before Christmas.

Welbeck first made his debut for boyhood club Manchester United in the 2008-09 title-winning campaign. He went on to make 92 appearances for the club, scoring 29 goals, before departing for Arsenal on transfer deadline day five years ago.

He scored 32 goals in 126 appearances for the Gunners and was often called upon by Unai Emery in last season’s Europa League campaign before his season was cut short by yet another injury.

He joins Man City’s Tom Dele-Bashiru and Craig Dawson from West Brom as new additions to Javi Gracia’s team this summer. João Pedro, a highly-rated striker from Fluminense, will join in January.
