Watford confirm the signing of midfielder Tom Cleverley on loan from Everton

Cleverley's Watford Return


Watford FC is delighted to officially confirm the signing of Tom Cleverley from Everton.

The ex-Manchester United midfielder, who joins on an initial six-month loan from Goodison Park, has completed all formalities and will be available for Walter Mazzarri’s squad this weekend.

Cleverley will be familiar with his surroundings, having spent 2009/10 on loan with Watford from first club Manchester United.

He was voted Player of the Season at Vicarage Road, after 11 goals in 35 starts for Malky Mackay’s Championship team.

Other loans – at Leicester City and Wigan Athletic – helped prepare Cleverley for an impact back at Old Trafford. He recorded 79 appearances for the Red Devils, and was part of 2012/13’s Premier League-winning squad.

After a season on loan at Aston Villa, Cleverley moved to Everton from United in summer 2015 - the now 27-year-old featured 42 times for Everton.

Watford’s deal with the Toffees includes a summer option for the Hornets to retain Cleverley on a permanent contract, should they so wish.
