Watford Release Super Eagles Midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo
Nigerian and Super Eagles midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo has been officially released by Watford following the completion of his loan spell at the club from his parent club, Stoke City.
Etebo moved to the Vicarage Road on a season-long loan deal last summer, with the option to join the Hornets on a permanent deal.
But the 26-year-old has been hampered by a long-term injury which limited his appearance for the club to just 10 league appearances in the 2021/22 season.
Watford announced on their website that the Nigeria is among the five players released as the club prepares to play in the Sky Bet Championship next season following their relegation from the Premier League.
“Following the conclusion of the 2021/22 Premier League season, Watford FC can confirm that five first-team players have left the club,” reads a statement on the club’s official website.
