Watford have announced the signing of striker Danny Welbeck.

The striker has been without a club following his release from Arsenal at the end of last season, but has now signed at Vicarage Road.

The 28-year-old, who has won 42 caps for England, has seen his career ravaged by injury, but he is fit again after breaking his ankle playing for the Gunners before Christmas.

That injury was picked up against Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League and turned out to be the last of his 126 appearances in an Arsenal shirt.

Welbeck, who left Manchester United to join Arsenal in 2014, will challenge Troy Deeney, Gerard Deulofeu and Andre Gray for a place in Javi Gracia's side.
