Watford have completed the signing Matthew Briggs from Fulham on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old defender will remain with Gianfranco Zola's side for the remainder of their promotion push.

Briggs has made 27 first-team appearances at Craven Cottage, with his last outing coming against Manchester City in the Premier League in January.

He has enjoyed loan spells at Leyton Orient, Peterborough and Bristol City in the past.
