Former Sunderland target Obbi Oulare has signed for Watford from Club Brugge on a five-year deal.

The Belgian striker was linked with a move to the Stadium of Light in April, and said he was aware of interest from the Black Cats and Manchester United.

At the time, the 19-year-old told Belgian website DH: “My dream is to develop and one day play in the best competition in the world, the Premier League.

“I have heard that Sunderland and even Manchester United are interested in me.”
