Super Eagles midfielder, Etebo joins Watford

Watford have signed Oghenekaro Etebo from Stoke City on a season-long loan.

The 25-year-old is the latest Nigerian to join Xisco Munoz’s side ahead of the 2021/2022 campaign.

This follows the arrival of Emmanuel Dennis from Club Brugge on a permanent deal.

Etebo’s move to Watford is his third loan move away from Stoke City.

The Super Eagles star spent the last one and a half seasons with Getafe and Galatasaray.

He has been at Stoke since 2018 and he played 45 matches in the Championship with two goals to his name.
