Watford has added value with the transfer of Daryl Janmaat from Newcastle United.
Janmaat, 27, is a marauding right back with size who made 77 appearances for the Magpies. The fee is reportedly in the $10 million range.

In Janmaat, Watford has scooped a former Newcastle Player of the Year who is terrific down the wing and an excellent crosser of the ball. He has 27 caps for the Netherlands.
“I’m really happy to be here, it’s a new adventure for me. I was really pleased that Watford showed interest in me because I wanted to play in the Premier League.
“We [Newcastle] lost three times to Watford last season. They had a good season and I hope we can do the same again this year.
“The club is showing great ambition and wants to improve, and I want to be part of that.”
The Hornets have drawn Southampton and lost to Chelsea this season, and were knocked out of the EFL Cup by Gillingham on Tuesday.
