Portsmouth have completed the signing of highly-rated Watford defender Mike Williamson on a four-year deal for around Ã‚Â£3 million.
The centre-back has worked his way through the leagues with the likes of Torquay, Doncaster before establishing himself at Wycombe. Watford then secured the defender in January 2009 before the defender supposedly handed in a transfer request after increased interest from Premier League side Portsmouth.
Pompey manager Paul Hart was said to be keen to bring in more defenders after the depature of Sylvain Distin and the 25-year-old joins former Manchester City and Chelsea defender Tal Ben-Haim as well as fellow former Hornets star Tommy Smith who joined Pompey only a few days ago.
Hart told press: “He’s a young, hungry centre-half, a big lad who’s uncompromising and does the basics first. We’ve watched him play and he’s shown great promise which hopefully he will build on under our guidance.”
The popular centre-back made 20 apperances in his 9 months at Watford scoring two goals and passed a medical earlier in the day.
