Watford are closing in on the signing of free agent Jeremy Ngakia. 

The right back, who turned down a contract extension at West Ham earlier this year, looks set to become the Hornets' first addition of the close season as they begin to build for life in the Championship.

The 19-year-old can also play in midfield, but has mainly been deployed as a right back during his time with the Hammers.

He made his Premier League debut in a 2-0 defeat against Liverpool in January of this year, before going on to make four more top flight appearances.
