Watford have signed Wigan captain Matt Jackson on a two year deal after he rejected a one-year contract at the JJB Stadium.

The 35-year-old made 191 appearances for the Latics, 84 as captain.

Watford manager Addy Boothroyd says that Jackson will provide cover for Jay DeMerit, who is expected to be on international duty for the USA next season

‘Signing Matt gives us a player with calmness and an ability to manage the game,’ Boothroyd told the club website.

Should the club have made more effort to keep Jackson?
