Transfer news; Manuel Almunia and Fitz Hall have moved to Vicarage Road

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia has completed his move to Championship side Watford as a replacement for Ipswich’s Scott Loach.

The 35-year-old was released at the end of last season and admitted he became lazy in the last year of his deal as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger saw him as third choice.

The Hornets have also signed former QPR man Fitz Hall, who was released by the west Londoners.
