[Danny Welbeck has revealed that he shunned advances from abroad in order to join Watford, with several opportunities put to him after leaving Arsenal] There’s been long-standing interest from Watford and as I was a free agent this summer I had lots of talks with clubs from England and abroad. But I think this is the perfect place for me to come to, and that’s what I took into consideration whilst talking to various teams. I’m really looking forward to showcasing my talents, being back out on the pitch and playing football, doing the thing I love most. I think this is the right place for me to be and I’m looking forward to it.
[He is, however, adamant that he has plenty to offer Watford, adding] There’s lots more to come. I know that I’ve got so much more to show the Premier League. It’s been frustrating at times but I can’t just dwell on that and let that get me down. I’m focused on now and being better than I ever have been. I’m feeling really good and really strong, and I’m looking forward to this challenge ahead
[Welbeck is also looking forward to linking up with a couple of familiar faces, with Tom Cleverley and Craig Cathcart having risen through the youth ranks alongside him at Old Trafford] I know some of the boys already and they can’t speak highly enough of the club. I used to live in digs with Craig at United and I’ve spoken to Clevz a lot about the club. He said I’d really enjoy it here and thinks it’ll be a great match for me to come here.
It seems like a great club with the whole surrounding environment. It’s a family-orientated place and that’s something that I value very highly. I’ve played against Watford and I like to watch football so I’ve seen them play on TV a lot and I know the team, and I think this is a place where I can really flourish. The squad we’ve got here is full of good players and people who I’m really looking forward to playing with and trying to push to that next level

[Danny Welbeck’s stunning overhead kick sent Norwich a step closer to relegation from the Premier League as Watford boosted their own survival chances with a 2-1 victory at Vicarage Road] It means a lot to me and means a lot to the whole team. It is one that puts us on our way now. We will give it our all from now, but I am speechless after the goal. I knew I had caught it, kept my eye on the ball and it went in the top bins. It was a great goal and I am very pleased with that one
