Under-23: Spencer-Adams Signs
Former Arsenal defender Bayli Spencer-Adams has joined Watford’s development squad on a one-year deal, with the club holding the option on an additional 12 months.
The 18-year-old centre-half, who left the Gunners earlier this year and has also previously played at youth level for West Ham and Tottenham, is the latest Under-23 recruit ahead of the start of the 2019/20 season.
“I’m buzzing to be here,” said Spencer-Adams, speaking to watfordfc.com.
“Watford is a really great club that pushed for Europe and got to a cup final last season, as well as playing a lot of young players, so it’s good to get this opportunity with a Premier League club.
“I’m a strong, physical defender who likes to get stuck in. I’m also comfortable on the ball and with my feet and I like to be a leader who communicates with my team.
“My target this year is to hopefully train regularly with the first-team and maybe make a few appearances on the bench, and eventually I’d like to break into the first-team.”
