Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak joins Watford on loan
Tuesday 21 February 2012
Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has joined npower Championship side Watford on emergency loan terms for the rest of the season.
The 29-year-old Poland international has made 61 appearances for the Red Devils since arriving in summer 2006 but has not featured for the first team this season, with David De Gea and Anders Lindegaard the first two choices between the posts for manager Sir Alex Ferguson following Edwin van der Sar's retirement.
Kuszczak started his professional career with Hertha Berlin and moved to England in 2004 when he signed for West Brom. He switched to Old Trafford in July 2006, initially on loan from the Baggies before penning a permanent deal the following summer.
Both clubs confirmed the deal this morning, with Watford adding that he will wear the number 35 shirt and was taking part in his first training session this afternoon.
Kuszczak will battle for the gloves with former England Under-21 keeper Scott Loach, who has played in 31 of the Hornets' 35 games so far this term.
