Watford have signed West Brom midfielder George Thorne on loan until the new year.

The 20-year-old has agreed a switch to Vicarage Road until January 2, although the Baggies have a recall option after the first 28 days.

Albion hope the move will give Thorne the chance to build up his match fitness after a long-term knee injury.

He could make his Hornets debut at Middlesbrough on Saturday.
