Former Liverpool and Spain winger Albert Riera has joined Championship Watford for the rest of the season.

The 31-year-old, who was released by Turkish side Galatasaray in January, has an agreement to join Italian side Udinese in the summer, but could be loaned back to the Hornets next season.

He had his first taste of English football when playing 19 games for Manchester City during a loan spell from Espanyol in 2006.

Riera returned to the north west just over two years later when Liverpool signed him, and he made 56 appearances for the Anfield club, scoring five goals, before departing for Greece.
