Deportivo La Coruna take Watford goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon on loan

Costel Pantilimon will spend the season in La Liga with Deportivo La Coruna.

Deportivo La Coruna have taken Romanian international goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon on a season-long loan from Watford, the Spanish club announced on Friday evening.

Tied to the Hornets until June 2019, the 6 foot and 8 inches-tall player will strengthen Deportivo's backline.

A Deportivo statement said: "Costel Pantilimon became this evening a new Deportivo goalkeeper. 

"The Romania international joins on loan from Watford until the end of the season."

A Premier League and League Cup winner with Manchester City in the 2013-14 campaign, the 30-year-old was Heurelho Gomes' understudy and made just seven appearances in all competitions since joining Watford in January 2016 from Sunderland for an undisclosed free.
