Nigerian striker joins Premier League club


Emmanuel Dennis Bonaventure has signed for newly promoted English Premier League side Watford FC.

The Nigerian attacker has completed the move from Belgian champions Club Brugge for an undisclosed fee.

Bonaventure spent the 2020/21 campaign on loan at German Bundesliga side FC Koln where he only managed to play nine league games and did not find the back of the net.

He won the Belgian Pro League title with Brugge in the 2019/20 campaign and also featured in both the Uefa Champions League and Europa League.

“An agreement with Club Brugges has been reached for the transfer of exciting young forward Emmanuel Dennis, Watford FC is delighted to confirm,” read a statement from the club’s website.

“A scorer of 27 goals in just over 90 club appearances for Brugges, he has featured in both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

“The Hornets are currently finalising personal terms with the pacy striker – capped twice by Nigeria so far – who began his professional career with some experience as a teenager in the Ukrainian Premier League with Zorya Luhansk.”
