Watford complete deal to sign Kayembe from Eupen

Watford have completed the signing of Edo Kayembe from Belgium side Eupen on a four-and-a-half-year contract, the Hornets have confirmed.

The midfielder joined Anderlecht in 2016 and he played 39 times for the Belgium First Division outfit.

Eupen signed the 23-year-old in 2020. He has scored four times for them from his 45 appearances across all competitions.

A reason for cheer and fear for each relegation candidate…

Kayembe has won eight caps for Congo and becomes Watford’s third January signing after left-back Hassane Kamara and central defender Samir.

Elsewhere, Hornets striker Emmanuel Dennis will not feature for Nigeria at this month’s African Cup of Nations.

Asked if Watford have disrespected AFCON by refusing Dennis’ release, Ranieri replied: “No, no. No, we respect everybody.

“They have a lot of players, and they changed the manager then they change everything, and then we were ready.

“We knew we were ready to give the players, but they didn’t do this. And then the two boards spoke and then for me it’s OK.

“I am only the manager, only the coach, and I accept everything.”
