Daryl Janmaat grateful to Watford for throwing him Premier League lifeline

The Dutch defender wrapped up £7.5m top-flight return from Newcastle yesterday.

Walter Mazzarri snapped up Janmaat until 2020 after an impressive two-year stay on Tyneside.

Janmaat, who snubbed interest from West Ham, had his heart set on the move once the Hornets followed up their initial interest with an official bid.

And after becoming Watford’s ninth summer signing, he said: “I was really pleased that Watford showed interest in me because I wanted to play in the Premier League.
