Skysports.com understands Lloyd Doyley has signed a new three-year deal at Watford.

Doyley, whose existing deal was due to expire in the summer, has agreed terms on a three-year extension and has been granted a testimonial as a reward for his long service to the club.

The versatile defender has been at the club all his life since making his debut in 2001 and he recently admitted he had no intention of leaving Vicarage Road even though he would have been a free agent in the summer.

Terms have been quickly agreed with the defensive stalwart and Doyley has put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract to keep him at Watford until 2012.

The 26-year-old has been a key member of the Watford side in recent years and news of his new deal will come as a massive boost to Hornets boss Brendan Rodgers as he plans for next season.
