Scott Severin has returned to Scotland by securing a loan move to Kilmarnock until the end of the season after making just four league starts since his summer move to Watford.

The former Scotland international was expected to be the experienced older head in Watford’s midfield this season following his free transfer from Aberdeen.

However, injuries and the form of John Eustace in particular have contributed to Severin only making six starts in all competitions and 11 appearances in total, with his only goal coming against Barnet in the Carling Cup.

Severin will link up with Watford youngster Rob Kiernan, who is also set to join Kilmarnock on loan until the end of the season.
