Villarreal and Watford have reached an agreement for the transfer of French midfielder Étienne Capoue, the LaLiga club have confirmed.

Capoue joins Unai Emery’s side until June 2023. The club are expected to announce the date of his official presentation soon. Capoue can not make his debut for the Yellow submarine until after January 4, the date set for the start of the winter transfer window. The 32-year-old will, however, train this Thursday alongside his new team-mates at Villarreal’s training ground.
