Watford have re-signed Fitz Hall for a third time after agreeing another one-month contract.

Hall has been training with the Hornets since the summer when his initial one-year deal expired.

The 33-year-old agreed a one-month contract with Watford in November after a string of injuries.

Last week head coach Beppe Sannino described Hall as "one of the key players" at the Golden Boys and said he would give the defender a chance to earn another contract after recent illness.

And this evening the Hornets confirmed another one-month deal had been signed.

Speaking last week, Sannino said: "Fitz Hall is a very important player, one of the key players at Watford in terms of personality, experience and presence.

"After I joined the club he was not training because he had a chest infection so I haven’t seen him on the pitch.

"Today (Thursday) he was training so he is getting better. As I have said before, after the Bristol City game Fitz will be one of the players we will assess."

The centre-back excelled in his 22 outings for Watford last season but after the player initially delayed contract talks, the club’s hierarchy decided to opt for other options in the summer.

Hall made one start and one substitute appearance after former Hornets boss Gianfranco Zola decided to re-sign the player in November.
