Watford FC is delighted to confirm the signing of Imrân Louza for an undisclosed fee from Ligue 1 side FC Nantes.

The 22-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year deal and arrives at Vicarage Road off the back of an impressive season for Les Canaris which saw him net seven goals in 35 appearances.

Louza joined Nantes as an eight-year-old and has turned out 58 times for the club since earning his debut in January 2019

Born to a Moroccan father and French mother, Louza has represented both countries at Under-20 level, also racking up six appearances for the France Under-21 side.

The left-footer is capable of playing out wide but predominantly occupies a central midfield position, either in a defensive role or further forward.

A talented passer, Louza is also skilled in dead-ball situations, taking corners, free-kicks and penalties at his former club.

Welcome to Watford, Imrân
