Newly-promoted Premier League side Watford are on the verge of securing a deal for Nigerian international Oghenekaro Etebo.

With the hornets bolstering their squad ahead of the new season a loan deal for midfield Maestro Etebo will likely happen.

The aforementioned Nigeria international will fancy a move to Watford as that will take him from championship side Stoke City to the English Premier League.

Etebo, is a low-risk option that could end up paying off in the future, should his loan move work out.

The midfielder shares an agent with new Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis and has been with the Potters since 2018 but has been sent out on loan to both Getafe and Galatasaray during that time.

He has made 51 appearances for Stoke in all competitions, scoring twice and providing one assist.

The 25-year-old is primarily a defensive central midfielder but has also played on the left on occasion as well.

He has made 33 international appearances for Nigeria.
