Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong has decided to stay with Watford at least until January, despite losing his place in the Hornets’ starting eleven.
According to The Athletic, the former Gent player rejected loan offers from Trabzonspor, Fenerbahce, Ankaragucu, and Kasimpasa.
It would be recalled that Turkish champions Trabzonspor and Fenerbahce had emerged as leading candidates for the signature of William Troost-Ekong.
And with Troost-Ekong no longer in the first-eleven picture at Watford, it was expected that the Nigeria international would welcome the idea of returning to Turkey.
The 27-year-old centre-back made 32 league appearances to help Watford to secure promotion to the English Premier League during the 2020-21 campaign.
But he has only featured once – totalling all of eight minutes – in eight Championship matches this term.
Still, Troost-Ekong is determined to regain the favour of head coach Rob Edwards and reclaim his spot in the starting eleven.
