Allan Nyom heads to Watford for talks about move from Granada

The Cameroon international defender has travelled to England, with the aim of joining The Hornets.

Watford could be about to realise another key Pozzo incorporation over the coming days, after Granada right-back Allan Nyom travelled to London, with the intention of negotiating a move to Vicarage Road.

Ideal Granada advanced in the early hours of Thursday morning, that Nyom will hold talks with Watford, although at this stage, a deal hasn't yet been confirmed.

However, close friends of the player have insisted the 27-year-old defender is highly confident, believing the talks will be merely a formality, and that he will complete the proposed move to Watford.

Nyom originally joined Granada when Gino Pozzo saved the club from the brink of collapse, in the summer of 2009, along with numerous other Udinese players.

Although he has spent the last six seasons at Nuevo Los Carmenes, helping Granada achieve back to back promotions from the Spanish third-tier to the top-flight, Nyom has remained contracted to Udinese.

He has remained a key figure in the Granada team over the last four seasons, making 134 appearances in La Liga, plus 8 in the Copa del Rey.

Recognised for his strength and determination defensively, Nyom also utilises his powerful frame well going forward, often out-muscling opponents to maraud down the right flank and provide crosses.

Whilst there have been recent links in the Turkish press, with clubs such as Galatasaray and Besiktas, it appears that Nyom has always set his sights on a move to the Premier League, having prepared for some considerable time by learning English.

Earlier this week, Granada president Enrique Pina confirmed that although no formal offers had been received from either Turkish club, the player had expressed a desire to seek a new challenge. That could now come with Watford, if negotiations proceed as well as Nyom is hoping.
