Premier League club Watford have paid a club record £12.5m to sign Isaac Success from Spanish outfit Granada.

The Hornets, who had been linked with a move for the Nigeria attacker since January, confirmed on their official website on Friday the player had agreed a five-year contract to join up with his compatriot Odion Ighalo at Vicarage Road.

The UAE 2013 FIFA Under-17 World Cup winner, who arrived at Granada in 2014, scored six goals to help the 85-year-old side escape relegation from La Liga last season.

“The highly-rated forward has agreed a five-year contract at Vicarage Road and becomes the Hornets’ third new signing ahead of the 2016/17 Premier League campaign, following Jerome Sinclair and Christian Kabasele,” the club said.

“The 20-year-old, who can play in a central or wide attacking role, moves from Spanish outfit Granada, having attracted interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs after scoring six goals in 30 La Liga appearances last season.”

Meanwhile, Watford have rejected a £37.5m bid from Shanghai SIPG for striker Ighalo, according to Sky sources.

SIPG coach Sven-Goran Eriksson is keen to partner the Super Eagles forward up front with Brazilian striker Hulk, who joined the big-spending Chinese club in a £46m deal on Thursday.

Ighalo, capped 11 times by Nigeria, has scored 37 goals in 63 appearances since joining the Hornets from Spanish side Granada in May 2014.

Watford captain Troy Deeney also agreed a new five-year contract on the day the Hornets signed forward Isaac Success from Granada for a club record fee.

Deeney, 28, had been linked to Premier League champions Leicester.
