Craig Dawson has claimed the decision to join Watford from West Bromwich Albion was a 'pretty easy' one.
Dawson ended his nine-year West Brom career in the summer, following his former Baggies teammate Ben Foster to Vicarage Road.
"When the opportunity came over the summer to sign for Watford it was a pretty easy decision," Dawson explained.
"Last season the lads did really well in the league and reaching the FA Cup final made it a great year for them. It’s a very exciting squad with a great coach, and it was a brilliant opportunity for me.
"Fozzy’s notoriously difficult to get hold of during the summer as he’s always out and about on his bike, but I managed to speak to him and obviously he had great words to say about the club and the staff.
"In typical Fozzy style, he was so enthusiastic and I could tell he really loved it here. I have good trust in him and that made it an even easier decision."
Watford are reported to have paid £5.5 million for Dawson, who has played every minute of their Premier League campaign so far.
But despite being bottom of the table after picking up a point from their opening four fixtures, the Hornets' squad, according to the Lancastrian, is 'the best I’ve ever been a part of'.
West Brom are currently fourth in the Championship under the management of Slaven Bilic and could, at this rate, feasibly overtake Watford next season.
