Super Eagles goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye, has joined Italian Serie A side Udinese on a four-year deal.
The move will serve as a fresh start for the Nigeria international who failed to hold down a starting position at Watford since joining from Dutch side Sparta Rotherham last summer for €5 million.
Maduka Okoye made just two appearances for Watford – one in the FA Cup and another in the Carabao Cup while conceding four goals in both games.
The club on Thursday announced the signing of the 23-year-old in a deal that will see him stay at the Dacia Arena until 2027. The Nigerian will wear the number 40 shirt at Udinese.
