Ahead of his impending departure from the team, Nigeria and Watford FC defender William Troost Ekong have sent a goodbye message to the club.
According to the update from Vicarage Road, Watford has agreed to a loan move for the Nigeria international from the Italian Serie A side Salernitana.
Ekong joined the Hornet from Udinese in the Serie A a few seasons ago and was part of the team in the premier league last season.
“The moment has come for me to move on from Watford FC after three special seasons shared with everyone involved. From everyone at the restaurant, security workers, and volunteers at the stadium to the medical & office staff and all the rest you have made my time what it was. The coaches and most of all my teammates, I can only say thank you!!!
“The Pozzo family for believing in me and the important five years of my career at both clubs with the highlight of the promotion and a chance to achieve my boyhood dream of playing in the Premier League.
“To all the fans thank you for your support, it has been special going from watching as a boy to stepping on the pitch as a player. As now a fan again I wish for promotion just as much as all of you and will be back watching from the stands in the future.
All the best,
Will”, he said.
