Despite not playing a single match for Watford, Gambian international Sulayman Marreh says he is not disappointed by being sent out on loan for the second time.

Marreh has been shipped out by the English Premier League side to a Spanish second-tier side Valladolid.

The release comes after the 21-year-old only joined the Hornets in June after his loan deal with another Spanish side Granada ended.


"I'm not disappointed the important thing is to get more playing time and prepare myself for the upcoming challenges," he told BBC Sport.

"It could be anywhere​ at Watford or elsewhere. I'm looking forward to playing in the premier league in the coming year - it is a dream come true to sign for a Premier League club."

Meanwhile, the midfielder is upbeat that his stint at Granada is going to help him ahead of his stay on loan to Valladolid.

"I had a great experience at Granada and I think that can help me this season," adds Marreh.

"The language and the way of football is the same so am hoping to make use of this opportunity to add more experience and maturity to my game."

Marreh has made eight international appearances for the Scorpions national team including last month's 2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Benin.
