Amrabat | “A Dream To Play In The Premier League”

A DREAM was fulfilled for new signing Nordin Amrabat when he put pen to paper to join the Hornets yesterday. 


Amrabat became Watford's first arrival of the January 2016 transfer window, signing on a three-and-a-half-year deal from Malaga, and the versatile attacker admitted that he now can’t wait to get started. 


“I’m really excited; I’m looking forward to playing for the Hornets,” he said, speaking exclusively to watfordfc.com


“It was a dream to play in the Premier League and I had a chance one year ago but I joined Malaga.


"I’ve seen Watford play several times, I saw them beat Liverpool 3-0. They have a Spanish coach who tries to get them playing good football, and I’m looking forward to being part of the team.”


The 28-year-old Moroccan international has been an avid admirer of the Premier League this season, and he’s kept a close eye on the Hornets, including the job that Quique Sanchez Flores has done at Vicarage Road. 


“I want to help my team and do my best. Hopefully I can make the team stronger with my qualities, I’m going to give 100 per cent and hopefully make the fans happy," he said.


“The Premier League is the best competition. Every game is exciting, there’s a lot of action and it’s always nice to watch the games. 


“Quique is a really good coach and he’s shown that over the last six months, he’s been amazing. 


“I’m really excited; I hope Saturday comes fast and I can get some minutes. I’m happy to be here, and I’m happy to be a part of Watford.”

Official | Nordin Amrabat Signs For Watford FC

WATFORD FC is delighted to announce the signing of versatile attacker Nordin Amrabat.


The Hornets have agreed terms with Malaga to acquire the services of the 28-year-old Dutch flyer on a three-and-a-half year contact.


The Morocco international will join up with Quique Sanchez Flores' squad after tonight's Swansea City fixture, ready for this Saturday's visit of Newcastle United to Vicarage Road.


Watford's Head Coach said of Amrabat earlier this week: "He has the qualities of the players we like.


"He can play at Number 10; he holds the ball, he can turn quickly with the strength of a striker and escape the defensive line.


"He can also play as a winger because he has that pace and velocity - the power that adds to the options of a team."
