• Watford has completed the signing of Nigerian midfielder Oghenekaro Peter Etebo from Stoke City.
  • The newly-promoted Premier League side contracted the player on a season-long loan deal, with an option to buy.
 Etebo, 25, 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.
 
The former Stoke City man played 29 times for Galatasary as they finished in 2nd place, missing out on the title to Beşiktaş on goal difference.
 

Etebo played a pivotal role when he was the top scorer as Nigeria won that year’s African U-23 championship in 2015 before he then scored four goals to help his country clinch Olympic bronze at Rio 2016.
