Troost-Ekong on the verge of Salernitana switch, Leaves Watford

Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong has announced his exit from English Championship side Watford.

Ekong bid farewell to the Hornets ahead of expected transfer to Serie A side Salernitana.

The move will see Ekong return to Italy three years after leaving Udinese for the English adventure.

The 29 year-old wrote on his social media handle:

“The moment has come for me to move on from WatfordFC after 3 special seasons shared with everyone involved. From everyone at the restaurant, security workers, volunteers at the stadium to the medical & office staff and all the rest you have made my time what it was.


The coaches and most of all my teammates, I can only say thank you.

The Pozzo family for believing in me and the important 5 years of my career at both clubs with the highlight the promotion and a chance to achieve my boyhood dream of playing in the Premier League.”


Ekong is expected to go straight to Salernitana’s team with Federico Fazio down with injury.

He made over 70 league appearances for Udinese before signing a five-year deal with Watford in the EFL Championship.
