WATFORD FC is delighted to announce the signing of experienced defender Jose Holebas from Italy Serie A 2014/15 runners-up AS Roma.

On the international stage, the 31-year-old has made 27 appearances for his country - including four as they reached the quarter-finals of the 2012 European Championships in Poland & Ukraine.

Holebas has a wealth of top-level domestic experience and European pedigree as well with 23 Champions League appearances to his name across his time in Italy, following a hugely successful four-year spell with Greek giants Olympiakos.
