Capoue signs for Hornets

Watford have announced the signing of midfielder Etienne Capoue from Tottenham for a club-record fee.

The 26-year-old has penned a four-year contract with the Barclays Premier League new boys, and is now set to join up with the Hornets for pre-season training. Capoue made 24 league appearances for Spurs after arriving at White Hart Lane in 2013 from French side Toulouse.

Spurs new boy Kevin Wimmer said he felt "very proud" after enjoying for his first day as a Spurs player yesterday. The 22-year-old Austria centre-back, who joined the club for £4million from Cologne in late May, underwent routine pre-season medical testing and then trained with his new team-mates for the first time.
