Transfer: Super Eagles captain, Troost-Ekong joins Osimhen, Lookman in Serie A
Watford and Super Eagles defender, William Troost-Ekong has joined Serie A side, Salernitana on loan.
The club announced the signing of the Nigeria vice-captain via a statement on their official website on Tuesday.
The statement partly read: “US Salernitana 1919 communicates that it has reached an agreement with Watford FC for the temporary transfer with the right to buy the defender born in ’93 William Troost-Ekong.”
TNN Sports gathered that the loan deal also includes a buy option.
The 28-year-old is no stranger to Italian football having spent two seasons at Udinese before completing a move to Watford in 2020.
Troost-Ekong has featured in 17 league games for Watford in the Sky Bet Championship this season scoring once.
The Nigerian’s return to Italy is expected to help strengthen the Garnets’ backline as they fight to avoid regulation this season.
