The 19-year-old has returned to the U's on a free transfer after playing eight games during a loan spell last season.

Massey made nine appearances as a substitute at Vicarage Road but has seen his first-team opportunities limited following the appointment of Gianfranco Zola as manager and the arrival of eight summer signings.

Us boss John Ward said: "Gavin is young enough to develop further and we saw a lot of promise last year in his play.

"He can now settle himself down and develop that promise into something more formidable.

"Things have changed a lot at Watford over the past few months and so we made an enquiry about his services and have now come up with this deal."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
