Danny Welbeck haunts Manchester United on return to Old Trafford in FA Cup

Watford have completed the signing of out-of-contract England striker Danny Welbeck.

Welbeck, 28, left Arsenal in June after five years at the club.

The Hornets believe Welbeck, who has 42 England caps and was part of Gareth Southgate's 2018 World Cup squad, can have a major impact providing he can stay fit.

He was restricted to 14 appearances for Arsenal last season after signing from Manchester United in 2014.

The Manchester-born forward did not play after suffering an ankle injury during a Europa League game against Sporting Lisbon in November.

Welbeck also made 142 appearances in six years at Manchester United, winning the Premier League title in 2013, before joining Arsenal for £16m where he scored 16 times.
