Ross County have confirmed the signing of Watford left-winger Joseph Hungbo on a season-long loan deal.

He becomes ‘Staggies’ manager Malky Mackay’s 10th summer signing and fourth loan signature from the English Premier League, following the arrivals of Alexander Robertson (Manchester City) Jake Vokins (Southampton) and Harry Clarke (Arsenal). Watford are believed to have a recall option for Hungbo.

Mackay said of the Watford talent: “Joseph is an exciting prospect, who has played in the Championship, learned his trade at Premier League Clubs and, at 21, he has already shown a terrific appetite to play at the top level of the game.

“We feel this can be a really good move for him to challenge and prove himself in the SPFL.

“I would like to thank Watford FC for the way in which they conducted the loan deal and our continued relationship.”
