Faraoni ‘agrees’ Watford move

Marco Davide Faraoni’s agent has confirmed the Udinese defender

has agreed to join Watford on a permanent deal.

Sky Sports revealed on Friday that the 21-year-old was one of

eight players to be close to finalising a move to Vicarage

Road.

The right-back’s representative Giovanni Bia is now waiting for

an official announcement and believes a switch to Watford will

benefit Faraoni’s career.

“We have practically defined everything,” Bia told

calciomercato.it. “So, we can affirm that Davide is a Watford

player even if it’s missing the official announcement.

“In this way, the player will remain at a club in the Pozzo

family, even if, for this case, we talk about a permanent move with

a new five-year deal.

“The decision has been taken to allow Davide to grow and take on

a new experience. The English Championship is ideal to evaluate

young talents.”

Faraoni joined Udinese from Inter Milan for an undisclosed fee

last summer, but he was unable to make an impression at the Stadio

Friuli.
