Report: Jose Holebas to hold Watford talks, contract to be signed on Monday

Watford Vicarage Road

Watford look to have finally completed the signing of Jose Holebas.

Holebas was confirmed as a Watford player by both the Hornets and Roma last week, and a report in TMW has confirmed that he is set for contract talks on Monday, with a deal to be signed the before the end of the day.

Despite both his current club and former club confirming the transfer of the Greek left-back, hours after the deal was reported, Holebas spoke to to admit that he has yet to sign a deal.

He claimed that both clubs arranged his transfer without consulting him, and he had yet to see the three-year contract that he has reportedly signed with the Hornets.

Whilst such a situation could see the 31-year-old refuse to complete the switch to the newly promoted Premier League side, the latest report indicates that a move is still expected, with the Serie A runner up in Hertfordshire today to complete a deal.

He has reportedly already agreed verbal terms with the Hornets, and all that is left to do is put pen to paper and formally confirm the switch, which is expected to be done before the end of the working day on Monday.

Although officially announced by both clubs, Holebas’s move will not be legally binding until the contract is signed, at which point he will become the fourth player brought to Vicarage Road this summer, following the permanent deals for Giedrius Arlauskis, Sebastian Prodl and former loan star Matej Vydra.
