Watford have signed Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley on loan until January.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a successful spell at Leicester last season, helping them to the League One title, and boss Malky Mackay has recruited him in a bid to add some much-needed quality to his midfield ranks.

The deal has gone through in time for Cleverley, who can also be deployed in defence, to be involved in Tuesday's trip to Nottingham Forest.
