By: Watford FC Staff

Watford FC is delighted to confirm the signing of exciting Mali youth international striker Mamadou Doumbia on a five-year contract.

The left-footed 18-year-old is set to join the Hornets on July 1, 2024 from Malian side Black Stars FC.

Standing at 6ft 3in, Doumbia combines his natural finishing instincts with flair and impressive ball control.

Doumbia burst onto the international stage with his performances at the 2023 Under-17 Africa Cup of Nations, scoring four goals in five games as Mali finished fourth.

He continued his impressive form at last year's Under-17 World Cup, grabbing another four goals, including a hat-trick in the team's opening fixture against Uzbekistan.

His other goal came in the third-place play-off against Argentina, which Mali won 3-0.

Welcome to Watford, Mamadou!
