Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson is delighted with his capture of Watford defender Danny Shittu.

Megson told the club's website: "Danny's a mountain of a man, he's aggressive, he's quick and his biggest strength is in the air. Anybody who has seen him play will know his defensive qualities already, plus he is dangerous from set pieces as well.

"Having said all that there is no guarantee he will get into the team and he has work to do because we have already got two good centre-halves.

"There was something agreed with Glasgow Rangers but the deal didn't go through and there had been another couple of offers from a Premier League club and a top Championship club so we are really pleased to have him here."
