Jeremy Ngakia is set to join Watford as a free agent following the expiration of his contract at West Ham United, according to Sky Sports (11:33).

Ngakia is a product of West Ham’s youth set-up and progressed through the ranks of the academy to make his way to the first team.  


He made his debut against Liverpool in January in a 2-0 loss for the Hammers, and caught the eye in the process.

The 19-year old full-back started to make his mark at the club during the business end of the season, filling in at right-back and winning plaudits.

However, Ngakia decided to reject a new contract with the Hammers and stay in the Premier League, instead is on course to sign for recently relegated outfit Watford.

Ngakia will be looking to play on a regular basis and help Watford to quickly return to the top flight.

Watford are currently under interim manager Hayden Mullin, with the Hornets yet to appoint a successor to Nigel Pearson after having parted ways with the Englishman before the conclusion of the 2019/20 Premier League.
