Watford have confirmed the signing of Newcastle defender Daryl Janmaat on a four-year deal.

The Hornets have paid a fee understood to be in the region of £7.5million to land Holland international Janmaat, who made 77 appearances for Newcastle.

The 27-year-old, who scored against Watford last season, joined the Magpies in a £5million deal from Feyenoord in July 2014.

Rafa Benitez, meanwhile, is expected to replace Janmaat with the £5million signing of Tottenham right-back DeAndre Yedlin, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland.
