Iwelumo: Joining Watford on a two-year deal from Burnley
Watford have signed striker Chris Iwelumo from Championship rivals Burnley for an undisclosed fee
The Scotland international has signed a two-year deal at Vicarage Road after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.
Burnley have decided to let Iwelumo leave with Clarets boss Eddie Howe happy with the striking options he has available to him at Turf Moor.
Iwelumo came close to leaving Burnley last January when they accepted an offer from an unnamed club, but the 32-year-old ended up staying at the Lancashire outfit.
Watford boss Sean Dyche is a big admirer of the former Stoke and Wolves hit-man and sees him as someone who can help fill the void left by Danny Graham's departure to Swansea.
