Watford have announced the signing of former Rangers forward Dapo Mebude on a two-year deal.

The 19-year-old also has a further two-year option written into his contract.

Mebude is a Scotland youth international who progressed through the ranks at the Glasgow club before making his debut in May 2019.

He departed the Scottish Premiership champions earlier this month.

He has made 23 appearances for the Scottish national team at Under 17, 18 and 19 level, scoring six times.


The teenager spent the back end of last season on loan at Queen of the South where he scored twice in 11 appearances.

Scottish newspaper the Daily Record described him as a "diminutive striker" who was "highly-rated within Ibrox" and claimed that he was "known for his lightning quick pace as well as his obvious finishing ability and is a handful for defenders with his trickery."

After making his debut, he said in a club interview: "When I play as a winger I try and be direct and score goals like Raheem Sterling who is fast, direct and a similar build to me."
