France international set to join Hornets' pre-season after signing from Tottenham Hotspur...

WATFORD FC is delighted to announce the signing of Etienne Capoue from Tottenham Hotspur for a club record transfer fee.

The 26-year-old midfielder, who has signed a four-year Vicarage Road contract, arrived at White Hart Lane in 2013 and made 24 appearances in the Premier League.


Capoue joined Spurs from French side Toulouse, where he played nearly 200 first-team matches after progressing through the youth ranks.

It was at ‘Le Téfécé’ where he continued to mature as a player, consistent performances earning him a nomination for Ligue 1's 'Young Player of the Year' award in 2013.

The France international has featured seven times for his country, scoring once; in a 3-1 victory over Belarus during qualification for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
