Watford's record signing Ismaila Sarr has described the Premier League as his perfect place to play following his sensational deadline day move to Vicarage Road.

The 21-year-old winger joined the Hornets from Rennes with just an hour and half of deadline day remaining and he told the club website he is looking forward to fulfilling his dream of playing in England.

“It’s a real pleasure to join this club. It was my dream to play in England and I’m really excited to be here and to have signed for Watford,” he said.

“It was a dream for many years to play in this country because of the intensity and speed of the game. That is the way I play so it’s perfect for me.”

The Senegal international has signed a five-year deal with Watford following his move which cost around £30million and he is hoping to repay the club's faith in him by injecting both pace and goals into the team.

“Hopefully the Watford fans are going to see some goals and the way I play with a lot of dribbles and speed, and hopefully that’s what they will be seeing a lot of in the future,” he said.

“I will give my best for the fans and for the club and they will see every week that I will give 100 per cent for Watford.”
