Watford have completed the signing of highly-rated youngster Will Buckley from Rochdale.
Skysports.com reported on Monday that Watford were chasing the Dale starlet and were closing in on an agreement.
The 20-year-old has now signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the Hornets and arrives for an undisclosed fee.
The forward-thinking midfielder can operate on either flank or in a floating role behind a central striker.
Buckley is in his third season as a professional, but only made his senior bow for Rochdale in February 2008.
He has made giant strides since then and has already turned out at Wembley, in the 2007/08 League Two play-off final.
Buckley has continued to impress since then, bagging 11 goals during the 2008/09 campaign and a further three in 15 outings this term.
