Watford FC Match

27-year-old Allan Nyom is ready to commit his future to Watford, after receiving a contract offer until 2019.

Cameroon international Allan Nyom is a step closer to joining Watford, having confirmed to Ideal Granada that he is "excited" by the contract offer he has received.

The proposal on the table, is one which will see the 27-year-old complete a permanent switch to The Hornets from Udinese until 2019, having spent the last six seasons on loan with Granada.

"I've received the contract and all that is required is for me to sign it." Nyom confirmed, whilst explaining that he's now in the process of reviewing the documentation.

Although he has been learning English, Nyom admitted: "The paperwork is all in English, which is a language I don't yet understand fully. So, it's going to depend on everything being okay, and that everything reflects what I was told verbally."

Delighted with the opportunity he has been offered at Vicarage Road, Nyom also enthused: "The project Watford have excites me, and aside from that, the Premier league is a competition everyone in the world sees."

For certain, there have been mixed reactions amongst Granada fans, who are reluctant to see one of their favourite heroes leave them. Some are disappointed and frustrated, whilst others can't fault the ambitions of Nyom, wishing him well in his move and sure he'll make a great impact at his new club.

After having already suggested that it was time to move on, to experience a change of scenery and take the next step in his professional career, Nyom will leave a large gap to fill at Granada, having proved to be such an important player for them.
