The Watford fans in The Transfer Tavern are gathered at the bar discussing news of a new record signing for their club.

Watford have confirmed via their official website that the club have completed the deal to sign Abdoulaye Doucoure for a club record £8.1 million from French club Rennes.

Doucoure will not be available for Watford until the summer after the club decided to send the player on loan until the end of the season to Granada in La Liga.

Speaking to the club’s official website about their new record signing, CEO Scott Duxbury said:

“The opportunity to sign Abdoulaye Doucouré now was one we wanted to act upon, given our long-standing interest in the player. He is very much part of Watford’s future plans, and in the time between now and pre-season he’ll be experiencing high-level competitive football in Spain.”

The Watford fans in The Tavern are delighted with the news and can’t wait to get a glimpse of the player in the famous yellow shirt next season.
