Joseph Hungbo will move to Ross County on a season-long loan deal after agreeing a contract extension at English Premier League club Watford (Athletic).

County manager Malky Mackay has signed three youngsters on loan from various Premier League clubs this summer; Alexander Robertson, Jake Vokins and Harry Clarke. Hungbo has made eight appearances for Watford and is rated highly by the Vicarage Road club.

He’ll remain at Watford until 2024 after signing a new contract. But with minutes likely to be limited at Premier League level, Hungbo will head to the Scottish Premiership for experience.

Ross County could lose him in January due to a recall clause inserted into the deal by Watford, but the agreement will be for a season-long loan. Hungbo has also spent time on loan at Aldershot Town.

 

Mackay’s side have started the Premiership season with a draw against St Johnstone and defeat to Hibs. Ross County host Rangers this weekend.
