Etebo joins Watford
Nigeria’s midfielder, Peter Etebo, has joined Watford from Stoke City.
The club made this known in a statement on their website on Friday.
“Watford FC is pleased to confirm the signing of Peter Etebo on a season-long loan from Stoke City, with an option to buy. Welcome to Watford, Peter!” the statement added.
The box-to-box midfielder, 25, is capped 38 times by Nigeria’s senior team, having previously turned out 19 times for the Super Eagles’ Under-23s.
Since joining the Potters in June 2018, Etebo has also spent time on loan at Getafe and Galatasaray, appearing in the Europa League for the latter.
Etebo began his career in his home country with Warri Wolves before switching to Portuguese outfit Feirense in 2016.
With Feirense he earned an immediate promotion to the Primeira Liga, then helping the team establish themselves in the top flight.
After signing two Nigerians, Dennis and Etebo, Watford is also currently in talks with KRC Genk in a bid to bring another Nigerian forward, Paul Onuachu, to the English Premier League.
Though interest has been made by the Hornets, talks with Genk are yet to reach the advanced stage.
