Dion Pereira sets new season targets after signing pro deal

Pereira | “A Dream Come True”

  
    

Academy graduate Dion Pereira has described signing his first professional contract as "a dream come true", after penning a two-year deal with the Hornets.

The 18-year-old, who made two substitute appearances in the Premier League last season, says the hard work put in over his time as a scholar has paid off now he has earned a professional deal.

"The manager kept us on our toes and we worked really hard, which got our fitness levels up, so looking back it was worth it," he said.
