Isaac Success signs for Watford

Nigeria’s Isaac Success has committed his future to the English Premier League club. He joins his compatriot, Odion Ighalo, from Granada for club record fee in the region of £12.5m, according to Sky Sport.The Nigerian agreed a five-year contract and his arrival comes after Watford rejected a bid in the region of £20m from Premier League champions Leicester City for captain Troy Deeney last month.

The Hornets have also rejected a £37.5m bid from Shanghai SIPG for Deeney’s strike partner Odion Ighalo.

Success has however sent a farewell letter to his former team mates at Granada.

Today is a bittersweet day for me, because through this letter, I want to say goodbye to the best hobby that you can have, to my colleagues, all the workers in the club who have both supported me since I arrived in Granada, in addition to this city that has given me everything,” he wrote.

“Two years ago I came to this amazing city, with a dream. I chased that dream since childhood and was playing in my town. From Benin City, it looked so far to play in Europe, to be a star, one of the greats, but thanks to the U17 World Cup in 2013 and I could begin to live it.

“I started in the] youth [team], which I have only words of thanks to all my team-mates. Before the end of that season and I was summoned to the first team, and I felt that with my daily work, that dream would be a reality.

“In the following season I was lucky enough to bet on me from the beginning, and I could grow within the Spanish first division, I could play against the best, I could enjoy so much in so little time we do not know how to describe in words these two years in this club that has made me grow and has given me everything I am today.

“I have to acknowledge all the coaches who bet on my terms over the years, but especially Sandoval and his technical team that gave me enough confidence to be better every day.

“Heartfelt thanks to all who have been there, to all who have followed me. If you ever feel I have not given everything that was expected of me, but my intention has always been to give our best and beat me every day.

“Now I begin another professional stage, which would not have been possible without my learning and development in Granada.

“So I leave thanking and saying this is not goodbye, it’s a see you soon, because I hope that life throws my way again in this club that I owe so much.”
