Lewis McGugan: Product of Nottingham Forest youth system

The midfielder, whose contract at Nottingham Forest expired at the end of June, has agreed a three-year deal with the option of a fourth.

And McGugan will now join his new team-mates on a pre-season training camp in Italy.

Watford boss Gianfranco Zola said: "Lewis is a very talented player and an excellent signing for this football club.

"He will give strength to our squad and I'm sure our supporters will be excited to see what he can do in a Watford shirt."

McGugan, who came through the Forest youth system, scored 44 goals in seven seasons as a first-team regular at the City Ground.

His move to Vicarage Road will be rubber-stamped once final medical clearance is given.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
