Watford have confirmed the signing of Nigeria U-20 midfielder, Tom Dele-Bashiru.

The Hornets announced his arrival in an official statement on their website.

Dele-Bashiru joined Watford on a six-year deal, following the expiration of his contract with Manchester City.

He is the second Nigerian player to be snapped up by the club ahead of the new season after winger, Joseph Hungbo, who was released by Crystal Palace at the end of last season.

The 19-year-old spent 14 years as a City player and made one appearance for the first team against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup quarter-final in the 2017-18 season.

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.
