Watford have signed Swansea striker Craig Beattie on loan until January 8.

Hornets boss Sean Dyche has secured the services of the former Scotland international, who has scored seven goals in 45 appearances for the Swans since joining in August 2009.

The 27-year-old started his career at Celtic before joining West Brom for an initial free of £1.25million in 2007. Loan spells at Preston, Crystal Palace and Sheffield United followed before Beattie moved to the Liberty Stadium as a replacement for the Wigan-bound Jason Scotland.
