Newcastle United defender Daryl Janmaat has completed his transfer to Watford for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old Dutch international arrived on Tyneside in July 2014 from Feyenoord, having impressed at that summer's World Cup in Brazil.

Janmaat made 77 appearances in all competitions for the Magpies during just over two seasons at St. James' Park, scoring a total of four goals.

His final outing for the Magpies came in a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Huddersfield Town earlier this month.

A statement on the club webstie read: "The Club wishes to place on record its thanks to Daryl for his efforts during his time at Newcastle.

"He leaves with our best wishes for his future at Watford."
