Newly-promoted Watford have signed Lithuania international goalkeeper Giedrius Arlauskis on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old was available following his release by Romanian side Steaua Bucharest after they won a domestic treble in 2014-15.

He was in goal for Lithuania's Euro 2016 qualifier against England at Wembley, in which he conceded a debut goal by Tottenham forward Harry Kane.

He will compete with Heurelho Gomes for a first-team place at the Hornets.

Arlauskis is Watford's second acquisition of the summer, following defender Sebastian Prodl, and featured in both the Champions League and Europa League for Steaua last season.
