🚨 Watford sign Nigerian winger Samuel Kalu

English Premier League side Watford have signed Nigerian international winger Samuel Kalu on a deal until June 2025 from French club FC Girondins de Bordeaux.

Kalu becomes the fourth signing in a busy January window, following the arrivals of full-back Hassane Kamara, central defender Samir, and midfielder Edo Kayembe.

Speaking after his official unveiling, Kalu said he “can’t wait to get started” in the Premier League. 

“When I heard about the opportunity I was feeling grateful,” said Kalu. “It’s one of my dreams to play in the Premier League, this is what I want. I will be here to give my best.

“I spoke to M’Baye Niang, he was my teammate in Bordeaux, he told me a lot about the Premier League and he was here before, he told me it’s a great club. He said the Premier League is the best league in the world, so I should grab my chance.

“[Slovakia, Belgium and France] are all good leagues but I see the Premier League as more intense, powerful, I see it as the strongest league in the world.

“With my experience from the leagues I have played in, it’s quite similar with Ligue 1 and the Premier League. It’s amazing, every game is like a final, playing against the top clubs in the world.”

Formerly of Slovakian side AS Trenčín and Belgian giants KAA Gent before his three-and-a-half-year spell in the south of France, Kalu hopes to bring his experience to the Hornets.
