Troost-Ekong Moves To Watford

Posted on September 30, 2020

Super Eagles of Nigeria defender, William Troost-Ekong, has joined Sky Bet Championship club, Watford, on a five-year contract.

The defender, Troost-Ekong, linked up with the Hornets from Serie A club Udinese.

The centre-back spent the past two years in Italy, playing 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.
