Watford are set to sign Stoke City midfielder Peter Etebo on a season loan with an option to buy.

With the Hornets' squad still in need of bolstering ahead of their return to the Premier League, attacking and midfield options are both high on the list of priorities, especially with the future of Will Hughes remaining uncertain.

Etebo, whose real name is Oghenekaro but is known as Peter, is a low-risk option that could end up paying off in the future, should his loan move work out.

The midfielder shares an agent with new Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis and has been with the Potters since 2018 but has been sent out on loan to both Getafe and Galatasaray during that time.

He has made 51 appearances for Stoke in all competitions, scoring twice and providing one assist.

The 25-year-old is primarily a defensive central midfielder but has also played on the left on occasion as well.

He has made 33 international appearances for Nigeria.
