Report: Watford ‘already signed’ agreement with Lithuania goalkeeper Giedrius Arlauskis

Watford Score

Watford are said to have agreed a deal with Lithuania international goalkeeper Arlauskis.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper currently turns out for Steaua Bucharest, but a report in Ziare has claimed that he is all-but set on a move to Hertfordshire.

Last summer he moved to Steaua from Rubin Kazan, agreeing a one-year deal, and the report states that he has already agreed a deal with the Hornets, following their promotion to the Premier League.

He had announced in the Winter that he would not be extending his contract with the Romanian giants, despite impressing with a number of performances. He has made 40 appearances in all competitions this term, conceding just 31 goals, and keeping 18 clean sheets.

He has experience in both Champions League and Europa League football, and if the report is true concerning his future at Watford, Arlauskis will be vying with former Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes for the number one jersey, allowing young English stopper Jonathan Bond to go out on loan for his development.

Aside from his successes at club level, Arlauskis is also a fully capped Lithuanian international, having made 18 appearances for his country since his debut in 2008.

The 27-year-old’s most recent international performance came in the March international break, when he played the full 90 minutes at Wembley, conceding four times to a rampart England team.
