Official : Nigeria U20 International Joins Watford On Six-Year DealPublished: July 24, 2019
Through a statement on their official website, Premier League side Watford have announced the signing of Nigeria U20 star Tom Dele-Bashiru.
The central midfielder has joined the Hornets on a six-year deal following the expiration of his contract with Manchester City.
Born in Manchester, Dele-Bashiru is the second Nigerian player to be snapped up by Watford ahead of the new season after winger Joseph Hungbo, who was released by Crystal Palace at the end of last season.
Aged 19, he spent fourteen years as a player of Manchester City and made one appearance for the first team against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup quarter-final in the 2017-18 season.
Tom Dele-Bashiru was the poster boy of the Flying Eagles squad at the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup and scored in his maiden appearance for the African giants in a 4-0 rout of Qatar during the tournament in Poland.
His sibling Fisayo Dele-Bashiru also trained with the Flying Eagles in Germany ahead of the World Cup but was not selected in the final squad.
