DONE DEAL: Watford snap up ex-Aston Villa veteran Carlos Sanchez

Former West Ham and Aston Villa midfielder Carlos Sanchez has been snapped up by Watford.

Watford have signed free agent Sanchez on a deal until the end of the season.

The 35-year-old, who won 88 caps for Colombia, has previously had spells at both Aston Villa and West Ham in the Premier League.

The well-travelled Colombian has also played in Italy with Fiorentina and spent time on loan at Spanish outfit Espanyol in 2018.

Sánchez, who will wear squad number 28, has immediately joined up with Xisco Muñoz's first-team squad and is available for selection against Nottingham Forest on Saturday (March 6).
