Official: Ibarbo joins Watford on loan from Cagliari

Watford have signed Victor Ibarbo on a season-long loan deal from Cagliari.

The 25-year-old winger spent the second half of last season on loan at Roma, making 10 appearances, and becomes the newly promoted outfit’s 14th summer signing and third on deadline day.

Watford drew their opening three games of the season on their top-flight return before losing 2-0 at Manchester City at Saturday. Quique Sanchez Flores’s team have failed to score in their past three outings and the Spaniard has moved to address his side’s shortcomings on deadline day.
