"THE Hornets have today (Tuesday) captured the services of Wolverhampton Wanderers' forward or wide man Michael Kightly for a month.
The former England Under-21 international arrives at Vicarage Road and will give further options to Watford boss Sean Dyche in attacking areas.
Kightly has been regularly involved in Mick McCarthy's matchday squads this season, both starting and coming off the bench, after returning from a long-term injury towards the end of 2010-11.
The versatile attacker made his mark in 2006-07 when he attracted the interest of Wolves. He initially joined on loan from then non-League high-flyers Grays Athletic in November and then signed permanently in January.
Kightly's professional career started at Southend United where he made first-team appearances between 2003 and 2004 before moving on loan to Farnborough and then signing for Grays in 2005.
After impressing at Grays and scoring 25 goals, he got the big break with a Molineux move.
The 25-year-old went on to establish himself in McCarthy's team and he made 41 appearances - many of which alongside Chris Iwelumo - and scored eight goals in all competitions as Wolves won the Championship title in 2008-09.
His game time in the Premier League was cut short by injury the following season and just when he was returning he suffered another set-back, although he returned towards the end of last season where he made four appearances.
Kightly takes squad number 18, vacated by Andi Weimann when he returned from loan to Aston Villa."
