William Troost-Ekong joins Watford on a 5-year deal
Veteran Nigerian defender, William Troost-Ekong has signed a five-year deal with Sky Bet Championship club Watford.
The centre-back joined the Hornets from Serie A club Udinese where he spent the past two years. He played 66 times for Udinese since his arrival from Turkish Süper Lig outfit Bursaspor in 2018.
Born in the Netherlands, he began his senior career in the Eredivisie with Groningen and Dordrecht before spells in Belgium and Norway, with Gent and Haugesund respectively.
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.
