Watford have signed Everton midfielder Tom Cleverley on loan until the end of the season.

The Hornets also have an option to buy the 27-year-old, who returns to Vicarage Road for a second spell having gone there in 2009-10 while he was still at Manchester United.

Cleverley joined Everton on a free transfer from United in July 2015 and, after making 30 appearances in his first season under then manager Roberto Martinez, he has not fared so well in the current campaign since Ronald Koeman took over.

He made just four Premier League starts in his 12 appearances this season, and the arrival of Morgan Schneiderlin from United in a £20million deal means his chances in midfield would be even more limited.
