Nigerian striker joins Udinese


Nigerian striker Isaac Success has joined Italian Serie A side Udinese from Watford.

The 25-year-old has penned a three-year deal with Udinese after spending five years with the Hornets.

“Udinese now boasts an attack replete with talent, strength, and technical quality,” Udinese announced on their official website.

“Isaac Success, Udinese’s fifth signing of this transfer window, has come in from Watford in a further boost to the club’s attacking options.

“Success joins on a permanent deal from the Hornets, penning a contract which runs until June 30, 2024.

“The Nigerian is a versatile and powerful attacker who is blessed with great explosiveness. Capable of playing anywhere across the forward line, either as a focal point or just behind the frontman, Success will be an important addition to Udinese’s squad.

“Success was born in Benin City, Nigeria on January 7, 1996. It wasn’t long before he was making waves in his homeland, starring in all age categories of the Nigerian national team.”

After a successful 2013 U17 World Cup campaign where he helped Nigeria win the global tournament, Success was signed by Spanish club Granada.

Watford signed him after a successful 2015/16 campaign in La Liga which saw him score six goals and assist another five strikes in 33 appearances for Granada.

He struggled to have a major impact in the Premier League and he will be eager to revive his career in Italy’s top flight.
