Mabude, 21, only joined the Hornets last year but has now been given the green light to head out the exit door.

Rob Edwards’ side have inserted a sell-on clause as part of the deal, as detailed on their official club website.

Year at Watford

Watford swooped to sign the winger in July 2021 on a free transfer after his contract at Rangers expired.

The Scotland youth international had risen up through the youth ranks at Ibrox but only played once for their first-team.

He did spent a lot of time playing for the Gers’ B team in the Lowland League though and also had a loan spell away at Queen of the South to gain some experience before his move to England.

The Hornets loaned him out to AFC Wimbledon last term and he went on to play 32 times for the Dons in all competitions, chipping in with two goals and two assists.

Mebude returned to Hertfordshire following the end of his temporary stint at Plough Lane but has now left in a switch that clears space in Edwards’ squad.

Other news

In other Watford news, their manager was frustrated with their draw away at Rotherham United this weekend.

He told their website:

“I’m feeling frustrated. The first 20 minutes weren’t good enough today and we’ve talked about that in the dressing room. We started too slow and the goal was obviously not good enough.”
