Parkes quits Saints for Hornets

24th January 2019, 14:08 by Craig Smithson

Southampton's teenage goalkeeper Adam Parkes has joined Watford on a permanent deal.

The 19-year-old has spent all of his career at St Mary's after linking up with the club at the age of 10, before signing a first professional contract in December 2016.

Parkes' deal with the Saints was due to expire at the end of the season, but the England Under-17s international has now switched to Watford.

The teenager is unlikely to feature in Javi Gracia's first-team at the moment but will instead link up with the Under-23s at Vicarage Road.
