Watford goalkeeper Jonathan Bond has joined Forest Green Rovers on a month-long loan deal.

The 18-year-old Hornets academy graduate will provide cover for the injured Matt Bulman, who is set to be sidelined for eight weeks.

Bond, who has played for Wales Under-19s, signed a three-year professional deal with Watford in 2010 but has yet to make a first-team appearance.

He is set to make his debut for Rovers against Alfreton on Saturday.

Bond scored a goal for Wales in their Uefa Under-17 Championship qualifying round 2-1 win over with Russia in 2009.

He was also named in the full international squad in 2010 but did not make an appearance in the qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland.
