Super Eagles Defender Troost-Ekong Joins Watford (Photos)
Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong is now a Watford player.
He joined the English club from Italian side Udinese.
The Championship side confirmed the five-year deal signed by the 27-year-old via an official statement on their website.
However, the financial implications of the permanent transfer were not disclosed.
Troost-Ekong, who is the latest new addition to Vladimir Ivić’s squad, spent the past two years in Italy with Udinese.
He played 66 times for the Serie A side since his arrival from Turkish Süper Lig outfit Bursaspor in 2018.
Already, the Super Eagles defender who has been handed the number 5 jersey has expressed delight at his move to Vicarage Road.
Ekong would be looking to help the Hornets secure promotion back to the Premier League having been relegated last season.
Interestingly, Watford boasts of having Nigerian players on their books in the past and present with the likes of Odion Ighalo, Isaac Success among others playing for the modest club.
