Watford signing Danny Welbeck: I could've gone abroad

Danny Welbeck says he rejected offers from England and abroad before signing with Watford.

The 28-year-old signed with the Hornets as a free agent after his contract with Arsenal ended in June.

"There's been longstanding interest from Watford and as I was a free agent this summer I had lots of talks with clubs from England and abroad," he said.

"But I think this is the perfect place for me to come to, and that's what I took into consideration whilst talking to various teams.

"I'm really looking forward to showcasing my talents, being back out on the pitch and playing football, doing the thing I love most.

"I think this is the right place for me to be and I'm looking forward to it."
