Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong has completed his move to English Championship side Watford from Serie A side Udinese.

The Super Eagles Center Back has been a regular fixture in the Udinese since joining from Turkish outfit Bursaspor in the 2018-19 season and has signed a five-year deal with the Hornets.

He notched up 66 appearances in all competitions for Udinese, as they finished 12th and 13th, with 43 and 45 points, in respective seasons, helping the club comfortably avoid relegation.

Watford was relegated from the Premier League last season after finishing in 19th position.

A former Netherlands youth international, Troost-Ekong made his senior international debut for Nigeria in 2015 and has since proven himself to be an important part of the Super Eagles’ defence, playing three times at the World Cup in Russia and making six appearances at last year’s African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

He will wear squad number 5.

There are very few things in life that make me happy, but talking and writing Sports has to be at the top. I honed my broadcasting skills at the University of Lagos Radio Station and have free-lanced for platforms like Top Radio and Superscreen TV amongst others. Deji loves running commentaries on Football matches and Athletics, and is now a Junior Sports Writer at Making of Champions. He hopes to become a Sports Agent in the future.
