Nigeria's Etebo completes Watford medical

Nigeria midfielder Peter Etebo has undergone a medical with newly-promoted Watford ahead of a move from English rivals Stoke City.

Football Flame understands the 25-year-old will join the Premier League side on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

It will be a third loan move away from Stoke for Etebo since he signed a five-year deal with them just ahead of playing for Nigeria at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Last season he was with Turkish club Galatasaray, for who he played 26 times, and that followed a stint in Spain with Getafe. IMG-20210708-171904-897

Etebo made his international debut for Nigeria in March 2016 and has won 38 caps, scoring twice for the three-time African champions.

Named Caf's most promising talent for 2015, Etebo was top scorer as Nigeria won the 2015 African U-23 championship and also scored four goals to help his country clinch bronze at the 2016 Rio Olympics football.
