GOALKEEPER Costel Pantilimon has today completed a permanent transfer to Vicarage Road, the Hornets are pleased to confirm.
The 28-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Watford and arrives for an undisclosed fee from fellow Premier League side Sunderland.
A Romanian international, the keeper featured 49 times after joining the Black Cats in the summer of 2014, including 18 outings during the first half of this season.
He had previously spent three years at Manchester City, where the 6ft 8in stopper played 29 times following a £3m move from Romanian outfit Politehnica Timişoara.
