Scott Loach joins Ipswich Town from Watford
4:18pm Thursday 19th July 2012 in Watford FC News
Scott Loach has completed his move to Watford’s Championship rivals Ipswich Town.
The ‘keeper leaves the Vicarage Road club for an undisclosed fee and has signed a four-year contract with the Tractorboys.
Although the fee is undisclosed, the Watford Observer understands it to be around £200,000.
Watford pulled out of a deal to sign Tom Heaton following the club's takeover and Loach's replacement is expected to be either Carlo Cudicini or Manuel Almunia.
Loach was with the Ipswich academy as a youngster before his family moved away from the area.
He made over 150 appearances for the Hornets and has also racked up 14 caps for England at Under-21 level during his time in Hertfordshire.
