Ashley Fletcher has told Watford fans what they can expect to see from him next season after his move from Middlesbrough.

The striker has signed a five-year deal which will begin once his deal at the Boro expires at the end of the month.

Speaking to the club website after his move was announced last week, Fletcher said he was surprisingly quick and has good movement for a taller player.

“I’m not just your typical target man, I’m quite quick as well and I can run at players,” he said. “I’m decent on the ball and I want to take players on and excite the crowd. That’s one of my benefits and something I’d like to do whilst I’m here.

Watford Observer:

“When a lot of people watch me, I think they’re surprised at how quick I am and how fluid I am moving for such a tall person. That scares defenders sometimes, that unpredictability can be a good weapon to have, and I can’t wait to get going.”

While the aim for the club is going to be securing safety in the top flight, Fletcher personally is hoping to excite the supporters inside Vicarage Road.

“I’m delighted. The club is going straight back up to the Premier League and as soon as I knew of the interest, I wanted to get the deal done,” he said.

“It’s going to be brilliant for me to walk out at Vicarage Road and I can’t wait to see the fans back in the stadium. I want to get fans off the edge of their seats, I want to score goals and contribute to the team. I’m looking forward to seeing them, hopefully exciting them, and let’s have a good season next year.”
