Left back Matt Sadler has hoisted his bagfuls of Championship experience onto his back and joined Watford after leaving the clutches of St Andrews on a 3½ year deal.

The Hornets have splashed out a cool £750,000 for the former England youth international defender and beat off a host of Championship rivals, including Wolves for Sadler`s signature.

The 22 year old Birmingham City academy graduate could see his price tag rise to more than £900K based upon appearance clauses and an additional sell-on fee but forget the money? it`s an important signing for Watford fans, who have been screaming out for Aidy Boothroyd to dig deep into the coffers and bring in a quality left back.

And Sadler is just the ticket.
