Watford have tied down defender Craig Cathcart to a new four-year contract.

Cathcart signed for Watford from Blackpool in 2014 after enjoying a spell at the club on loan from Manchester United in 2009. The Northern Ireland international has established himself as a regular under Hornets head coach Javi Gracia, appearing in all but two of the club’s Premier League games last season.

"I feel at home, I'm comfortable and it's a family club. I enjoy coming here every day to work, it's a nice atmosphere and when things are going well it's even better,” he said.

"My family love living here and things are going well. We had a great season last season with the team, and everything is looking positive. I'm delighted to stay. The club has been on an upward swing since I've come here and I don't want it to stop now, I want it to carry on.”

"We want to push on again and be competitive as a team. You want to be successful as a team and as an individual player as well, and that's what I'm looking forward to in the next four years, hopefully."

The fresh terms see Craig tied down until 2023 as he previously had two years left on his contract.
