The 29-year-old defender is expected to join the Italian Serie A club on loan for the remainder of the 2022-23 campaign with an obligation to buy him from Watford.

Troost-Ekong has spent three years at Watford, who campaign in the English Championship, making 64 league appearances and scoring twice.

“The moment has come for me to move on from Watford after three special seasons shared with everyone involved,” Troost-Ekong wrote on his official Twitter page.

“From everyone at the restaurant, security workers, volunteers at the stadium to the medical and office staff and all the rest you have made my time what it was,” Troost-Ekong wrote on his Twitter handle.

“The coaches and most of all my teammates, I can only say thank you!!!

“The Pozzo family for believing in me and the important 5 years of my career at both clubs with the highlight the promotion and a chance to achieve my boyhood dream of playing in the Premier League.

“To all the fans thank you for your support, it has been special going from watching as a boy to stepping on the pitch as a player. As now a fan again I wish for promotion just as much as all of you and will be back watching from the stands in the future.”

Troost-Ekong is familiar with the Serie A having turned out for Udinese Calcio between 2018 and 2020.
