Super Eagles shot stopper, Maduka Okoye has joined Watford for pre-season as the relegated Premier League side begins preparation for life in the EFL Championship.

The 22-year-old goalkeeper joined The Hornets from Sparta Rotterdam after signing a five-and-a-half year deal with the club back in January.

The Nigerian international has been tipped to become Watford's number one ahead of next season.

He will replace Ben Foster who is set to leave the club when his contract runs out in July.

Okoye's last featured for Nigeria at 2021 AFCON in January, when the Super Eagles shockingly lost to Tunisia by a lone goal at the knock out phase of the competition.
