Watford have signed Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak on an emergency loan deal until the end of the season.

The Polish keeper has not featured for United's first team since May 2011, taking a backseat to David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard at Old Trafford this term.

The 29-year-old has spent the last five-and-half years with the Red Devils, notching up 61 appearances.

He initially arrived in Manchester on loan from West Brom in July 2006 before the deal was made permanent the following summer.

Kuszczak, who began his professional career in Germany with Hertha Berlin, will battle regular No.1 Scott Loach for the gloves at Watford as the Hornets aim to sidestep relegation from the Championship.

Both clubs confirmed the deal on Tuesday morning, with Watford adding that he will wear the number 35 shirt and was taking part in his first training session that afternoon.
