Official: Leganes Loan For Navarro

Marc Navarro will spend the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Spanish side CD Legańes.

A graduate from Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy, the Spanish right-back joined The Golden Boys in June 2018 on a five year deal from RCD Espanyol, having made 36 appearances for the Periquitos. 

However, an unfortunate injury sustained just after making his Premier League debut away at Arsenal and the form of Daryl Janmaat and Kiko Femenía meant Navarro was restricted to just five appearances last season.  

Navarro will hope to gain valuable game time and help Leganés improve on a 13th-placed finish in La Liga last season.

Official: Dele-Bashiru Signs

Watford Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Nigerian Under-20 international Tom Dele-Bashiru on a six-year deal after his contract expired at Manchester City.

The central midfielder made his senior debut for City in the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester City in 2017/18, coming on for Phil Foden in the 91st minute.

He has also played extensively in the UEFA Youth League, Premier League 2, FA Youth Cup and the Checkatrade Trophy for the Citizen's youth sides.

The 19-year-old midfielder is Manchester-born, and has represented both England and Nigeria at youth level, scoring for the Super Eagles in the Under-20 World Cup against Qatar in May.

He joins as the Hornets' second first-team recruit this summer, after Craig Dawson moved to Watford from West Bromwich Albion.
