United starlet Eagles joins Watford on loan

January 6, 2006

Watford have signed Manchester United youngster Chris Eagles on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old winger has been on loan at Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday since the start of the campaign but has now made the switch to Vicarage Road for the second time in his short career.

Eagles spent three months with the Hornets last season, and is now looking forward to working under new boss Adrian Boothroyd.

He told the club's official website: 'Joining Watford feels absolutely right and I'm really pleased to be joining a team that is doing so well - and is keen to improve and get into the Premier League.

'I will do everything I can to repay the faith shown in me by Aidy.'
