Super Eagles Assistant Captain William Troost-Ekong has signed for Watford.
The club announced Troost Ekong’s signing in a statement on Tuesday.
The statement was titled ‘Official: Hornets Sign Troost-Ekong & Youngster Touré’.
The club said: “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.”
The 27-year-old defender signed a five-year contract with the Hornets and becomes the latest new addition to Vladimir Ivić’s squad.
Troost-Ekong has spent the past two years in Italy with Udinese, playing 66 times for the Serie A side since his arrival from Turkish Süper Liga 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.
