Watford have officially confirmed the arrival of Edo Kayembe from KAS Eupen.

Head coach Claudio Ranieri already revealed that the player would be joining in a press conference earlier today, but the club has now announced the deal.

Speaking of new signings Hassane Kamara and Samir this afternoon, Ranieri explained that Kayembe would be his third arrival alongside the other two.

"They are experienced players, two left footers and I think their personality could improve all the team," he said.

"There is also Kayembe, the midfielder, he’s another left footer, he's strong. These three new players can improve the team."


The Congolese international has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal.

He is seen as a defensive midfielder, but joins with a record of four goals and three assists from 45 appearances for Eupen.
