Watford close to ex-Milan man Amelia

Ex-Milan goalkeeper Marco Amelia is reportedly ready to sign for Championship club Watford.

The 32-year-old shot-stopper is a free agent after his contract with the Rossoneri was allowed to expire this summer.

According to, Amelia has agreed personal terms with Watford and will begin a new chapter of his career in England.

He won’t have problems settling in, as there are numerous Italian-speakers at the club.

Watford are owned by the Pozzo family, who also run Udinese and Spanish side Granada, so the squad is packed with players on loan from the Serie A club.

The only other credible option for Amelia appears to be Zdenek Zeman’s Cagliari.
