WATFORD have announced the signing of Keith Andrews on a season-long loan.

The former Republic of Ireland international has 12 months remaining on his Wanderers contract, so has effectively played his last game for the club.

He will not be eligible to play for the Hornets when the two clubs meet on the opening day of the Championship season at Vicarage Road on August 9.

Andrews made 29 appearances in total for the Whites, scoring four goals, all of which were penalties.
