Skysport - Shittu reveals Prem motivation

Watford new-boy Danny Shittu says he had to leave QPR in order to pursue a career in The Premiership.

The stopper snubbed strong interest from West Brom to join The Hornets in a £3 million deal on Sunday, leaving a gaping hole in the Rangers backline in the process.

After almost five years at Loftus Road, Shittu was sad to leave the London outfit, but the short trip to Watford offered him an irresistible chance to test himself at a higher level during the coming season.

"To test myself in The Premiership is something I have wanted to do for a long time," said Shittu.

"I am sorry that I have to leave QPR - but it's something that had to happen.

"It's hard leaving a club that has been like a family to me for the last four years.

"I feel I'm ready for The Premiership. I will work hard.

"I believe I can deal with whatever is thrown at me, and I hope I can make a bigger name for myself than I did at QPR."
