Former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has terminated his contract with Watford by mutual consent.
The 29-year-old England international’s contract with the Hornets was due to expire next summer with a £5.5m release clause but he is now available for free.
Welbeck was set leave Watford with clubs from both home and abroad considering a move for the striker.
The England striker since joining Watford for free last summer scored three goals in 20 appearances for the Hornets.
Watford confirmed on their official Twitter account that the deal between the club and the striker has been terminated by mutual consent.

A spectacular bicycle kick the found the back of the net against Norwich was one of the goals to remember while he was playing for the Hornets. He also scored against his former club Arsenal in the last game of the season but that could not save them from being relegated.
Danny since his debut in 2008 has scored 44 goals and provided 20 assists in 224 Premier League appearances.
Deadline day has passed but that doesn’t mean transfers are over for Premier League clubs. Domestic transfer between PL clubs and EFL clubs can still continue until October 16.
Premier League clubs could still loan players to EFL clubs and also sign players to improve their squad.
