Former Tottenham defender Danny Rose is "over the moon" to have signed for Watford on a two-year contract.

Watford are 13/5 to win their opening game of the next Premier League campaign against Aston Villa and 8/11 not to be relegated.

I've been given an opportunity to play in the best league again and I intend to take it with both hands.

Rose spent 14 years at north London outfit Tottenham before being released by the club after failing to make a single appearance last season.

Left-back Rose spent the last campaign training with the Spurs Under-23s team and last featured in a top-flight fixture in July last year when he was on loan at Newcastle United.

But the 30-year-old has put pen to paper on a deal with the Hornets, who gained promotion to the Premier League from the Championship last season.

Rose, who featured in Tottenham's 2019 Champions League final loss to Liverpool, has also turned out for Watford before, having been loaned to the Hertfordshire outfit during the 2008-09 season.

And speaking about his decision to return to the club, Rose said: "I was possibly looking to go abroad but I've been given an opportunity to play in the best league again and I intend to take it with both hands.

"I used to play here against Watford for Tottenham and the fans once the place is rocking are different gravy.

"I think this season is going to be exciting - I spoke to the people upstairs and they're looking to make additions to the squad. I have no worries about where the club's going to be and I'm over the moon and raring to go."
