Watford Close To Announcing Signing Of Former Crystal Palace Teenage Star
Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that English Premier League side Watford are on the verge of announcing the signing of promising Nigerian winger Joseph Hungbo.

The 19-year-old was the shock name in Crystal Palace's released list at the end of the 2018-2019 season.

Hungbo has been training with Watford U23 squad since the start of pre-season and he is in advanced talks to sign for the Hornets.

He was one of the best young players at Palace Academy, winning the club's Under 9-16 Player of the Year award in 2016 and captained the U18 squad.

A shoulder injury the winger suffered in a pre-season friendly against Kingstonian slowed his progress and he had to be loaned out to Margate for the second half of the 2018-2019 campaign to gain first-team experience. 

Young stars Jayden Bennetts and Emmanuel Adebiyi as well as first-teamers Isaac Success and Stefano Okaka have been retained by Watford for the 2019-2020 season.
