Watford have handed a new three-year deal to Northern Ireland international defender Lee Hodson.

Despite only being 19-years-old, the right-back has featured 66 times for the Hornets since making his debut in May 2009.

He has just returned from Nations Cup action, where he played twice for Nigel Worthington's Northern Ireland side.

"It's great to get the contract sorted so I can now concentrate on my football," he told the club websiteexternal-link.

"I want to come back fit and start the new season flying.

"Watford is a great football club so to sign another three-year contract is fantastic.

"Right from the start of pre-season I want to impress the gaffer and try to get that right-back spot."

Hodson, who amassed 31 appearances for Watford last season, made his international debut in a friendly with Morocco in November, and has collected a total of four caps.
