Hornets hopeful over Heaton
Watford are closing in on the signing of former Cardiff City goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who is available on a free transfer, according to reports.
Sky Sports understands that a number of clubs have expressed an interest in former Manchester United youngster Heaton, but it appears Watford are set to win the race for his signature.
Watford are in the market for a new goalkeeper after seeing Tomasz Kuszczak, who had a spell on loan at Vicarage Road last season, move to Brighton.
Talks are thought to be at an advanced stage with Heaton with the keeper expected to become the first signing at Watford since the takeover of the Pozzo family.
