DONE DEAL: Watford signing Sulayman Marreh happy with Rayo Vallecano loan

New Watford signing Sulayman Marreh is happy to move on-loan to Rayo Vallecano.

Marreh insists he is happy to be given an opportunity to play, having only signed for Watford this pre-season from La Liga side and former Pozzo-owned Granada.

He told BBC Sport: "I'm not disappointed the important thing is to get more playing time and prepare myself for the upcoming challenges.

"It could be anywhere at Watford or elsewhere. I'm looking forward to playing in the premier league in the coming year - it is a dream come true to sign for a Premier League club."

Marreh spent three years with Granada, where he broke into their first team in 2014 and was later likened by the club's then-coach to Manchester UnitedPaul Pogba.

"I had a great experience at Granada and I think that can help me this season," he added.

"The language and the way of football is the same so am hoping to make use of this opportunity to add more experience and maturity to my game."
