Super Eagles defender, William Troost-Ekong, is set to undergo a medical on Monday ahead of a transfer to Greek giants PAOK.
The former Udinese defender has been on the books of English Championship side Watford FC since 2020 with his deal billed to expire in 2025.
Both Watford and PAOK have agreed on a deal in the region of £1 million for the Nigeria international who made a total of 68 appearances for the English side. The 29-year-old was instrumental in helping the Hornets gain promotion to the Premier League in the 2021/22 season but was unable to help them retain their topflight status.
Troost-Ekong in the 2022/23 fell out of favor at the club and was loaned out to Italian Serie A side Salernitana during the January transfer window. He made nine appearances and found the back of the net once.
According to The Athletic per Football League World, the deal is as good as done and only dependent on Troost-Ekong passing his medical on Monday in Greece. “Watford and PAOK are in advanced talks over the sale of William Troost-Ekong. The Nigeria international — who is under contract at Vicarage Road until 2025 — is believed to have agreed a three-year contract with the Greek Super League side.
“The two clubs are now negotiating on a fee, which is likely to be in the region of £1million. He is due to travel to Greece for a medical on Monday.”
Troost-Ekong had turned down a move to PAOK rivals Panathinaikos.
