​DONE DEAL: Ex-Watford midfielder Watson signs with Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest have completed the free transfer signing of Ben Watson, who left Watford after his contract expired.

Watson has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at Forest, and he will be hoping to fight for a place in the first team for the rest of the season and beyond.

Watson only appeared in the Premier League eight times this season, and he was on the outer at Watford with other players showing greater potential in his position.

He did have a very good career at the club, playing 78 times and scoring two goals since joining them in the winter of 2015.

Watson should make his first appearance for Forest against Hull City on Saturday.
