Watford turn down N864.6m offer from Turkish club for Super Eagles defender

According to The Athletic UK (subscription required), Championship club Watford have reportedly turned down an offer from a Turkish club for William Troost-Ekong.


Trabzonspor wanted to sign the Nigeria international on a season-long loan with an option to buy included in the deal but it was rejected by the Hornets.


The offer from the Super Lig club was worth 1.7 million pounds (approximately N864.6 million in Nigerian currency).


Troost-Ekong was sparingly used by manager Roy Hodgson in the second half of last season and the situation has not changed under new coach Rob Edwards in the early stages of the 2022-2023 season, with seven minutes played in two competitive matches.


Per the report, he is set to be omitted from the matchday squad this evening when Watford take on Burnley at Vicarage Road.


Troost-Ekong has played in Turkey before, making thirty-two appearances for Bursaspor, before moving to Italy in the summer of 2018.


Signed from Udinese in September 2020, the central defender still has three years left on his Watford contract.
