Watford sign Malaga forward

Watford have completed the signing of Morocco forward Nordin Amrabat from Spanish side Malaga.

The 28-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the Premier League side.

Amrabat joins Watford for a fee of £6.1million.

“He has the qualities of the players we like,” said Hornets manager Quique Sanchez Flores.

“He can play at number 10; he holds the ball, he can turn quickly with the strength of a striker and escape the defensive line.”
