Watford have today confirmed that club captain John Eustace has signed a contract extension taking his current deal up until the summer of 2013.

The Hornets maestro, who signed from Stoke City in January 2008 for £250,000, played 42 times for the Hornets last season scoring 6 goals.

Last season after his contract expired he came close to signing for Leeds Utd before deciding to stay loyal to the Hornets and penned a new deal.

This will come as good news for Watford supporters after it put to bed persistent rumours of interest from Derby County.
