Watford have added a new recruit to their academy, with the signing of Irish teenager Bosun Lawal.

The youngster has made the move from Bohemians in Dublin who he joined after picking up several titles with St Kevin's Boys.

A partnership between St Kevin’s and the League of Ireland side Bohemians saw Lawal progress from Under-15 to Under-17 level with the Irish top flight team before making his move to the Hornets.

Neil Fox from St Kevin’s described Lawal as both “a strong midfielder who likes to play” and “a good tackler of the ball,” and said: “Watford are getting a very good player and potential future Ireland senior international.”
