However, he back fit now and will be looking to get back into the Hornets’ side as they eye an immediate promotion from the Championship.

Their boss, Rob Edwards, has told their official club website:

“We have Jeremy Ngakia who is in the mix and has been training with us.”

Watford situation

Ngakia made 19 appearances in all competitions last season as Watford were relegated from the Premier League.

Hull City were said to be keen on luring him away from Vicarage Road in the last transfer window, as reported by Football Insider.

The Tigers had an ambitious summer on the transfer front and ended up bringing in 16 new faces.

Ngakia reportedly emerged on their radar but Shota Arveladze’s side brought in Cyrus Christie in his position instead.

He remained in Hertfordshire and appears to be sticking around until the January now at least, unless he is sold to a team in Greece, Isreal or Serbia where the transfer window is still open.

The former West Ham man provides Edwards with an another option at full-back which is useful as games are going to start coming thick and fast now.

Ngakia’s contract expires in 2024 meaning he still has another couple of seasons left too.

Other news

In other Watford news, goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann has spoken about Manchester United’s interest in him.

He told laola1:

“Of course it’s great to be associated with such a club. It was also a serious story.

“In the end, however, I’m still a Watford player and I’m very happy about it because I play here regularly, bring in my performances and hopefully can play a role in the national team again.”
