Watford have announced the arrival of Nigerian midfielder Peter Etebo from Stoke City.

The 25-year-old arrives on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

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.
