Watford skipper and former Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia will leave the Championship club when his contract expires at the end of the month. Technical director Gianluca Nani said: "Our thanks go to all the players whose contracts finish this summer."

The 37 year old joined the Hornets in 2012 and played 81 games for the club, but his departure looked likely when it was confirmed Tottenham's Heurelho Gomes would be arriving at Vicarage Road this summer.
