Pantilimon, who was previously with English top-flight giants Manchester City, has signed a three-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee, according to a statement on Watford's website.

Now Pantilimon will find himself competing alongside Heurelho Gomes for a place in the Hornets' starting line-up.
