have finally completed the signing of international Nordin Amrabat from CF, according to the club’s official website.

Nordin Amrabat has switched La Liga for the English Premier League, after Watford completed a deal to his services from Málaga Club de Fútbol.

The fee is reported to be in the region of €8 million, but the Hornets have not disclosed the actual amount.

After joining Málaga on loan in January 2014, the winger decided to extend his loan stay by another year the following summer. Amrabat then made the switch permanent for a reported €3.5 million in 2015.

However, his subsequent performances for the Andalusians have flattered to deceive, with just one assist and no goals in 13 league appearances this season.

The 28-year-old will be hoping to improve his form under Quique Sánchez Flores, and a high-flying Watford side will be hoping for strong showings from the talented Dutch-born Moroccan, who has been capped 23 times by the Atlas Lions.
