Official | Isaac Success Signs

WATFORD FC is delighted to confirm the signing of Isaac Success for a club record transfer fee.


The highly-rated forward has agreed a five-year contract at Vicarage Road and becomes the Hornets' third new signing ahead of the 2016/17 Premier League campaign, following Jerome Sinclair and Christian Kabasele.

The 20-year-old, who can play in a central or wide attacking role, moves from Spanish outfit Granada, having attracted interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs after scoring six goals in 30 La Liga appearances last season.

His impressive performances during the 2015/16 campaign also earned Success the club’s Player of the Year award.

A Nigerian Under-17 and Under-20 international, Success arrived at Granada in 2014 and went on to play 56 times in all competitions, scoring seven goals.
