Official | Cleverley Contract Confirmed
Watford FC is delighted to confirm it has exercised an option within the loan agreement with Everton FC to convert Tom Cleverley’s stay into a permanent contract – as at July 1, 2017.
The Hornets are delighted to have concluded this agreement, which sees the England midfielder pen a five-year-deal at Vicarage Road, moving from Goodison Park for an undisclosed fee.
Cleverley, a former Player of the Season winner in a previous loan spell at Watford, has made eight appearances this season to add to his tally of 11 goals in over 30 games during the 2009/10 campaign.
Hornets’ CEO Scott Duxbury said of the deal: “We’re very pleased to secure Tom’s signature. I believe it’s a sign of our ambition to recruit the highest calibre of player for Watford.
“Tom’s affinity with the club and supporters has been very clear from the moment he returned, and we now look forward to seeing him in a Watford shirt for many years to come.”
