We are all united in the club, especially in the team, and that’s what matters
Defender Younès Kaboul joined Watford FC in August 2016.
The 30-year-old centre-half signed a three-year contract after joining from fellow Premier League club Sunderland.
Kaboul played an instrumental part as the Black Cats avoided relegation in 2015/16, making 23 appearances after moving to the Stadium of Light from Tottenham for £3m in 2015.
Kaboul featured 140 times during two spells at Spurs after first moving to England from Auxerre for £8m in 2004, and he was named club captain for the 2014/15 season.
He spent a year-and-a-half with Portsmouth, then a Premier League side, scoring five goals in 50 appearances before returning to White Hart Lane in January 2010.
The defender put in some towering performances during his first-season at Vicarage Road, notably in the 2-1 win over Arsenal at The Emirates, before a hamstring injury prematurely ended his campaign.
The centre-half made just two appearances in 2017/18 - in the 3-3 home draw with Liverpool and the 2-0 away win over Southampton - as a metatarsal fracture limited his involvement.
A former captain of the France Under-21 team, Kaboul has played five times for the full national side.
