Watford signing Baah hopes to stick close to captain Deeney

Watford signing Kwadwo Baah hopes to stick close to captain Troy Deeney.

The former Rochdale attacker officially became a Watford player today.

"I'm looking forward to it," he told the club website. “Especially Troy Deeney, he's a club legend here so I'm here to adapt and learn with him, see what he's got and show what I've got. He can teach me certain things that I need to learn and need to improve on, so I'm very happy."

At only 18, Baah knows he still has plenty of developing left to do before he reaches the peak of his talents, but he believes that talent can only take a player so far and that having the right mindset is equally as important.

“You can have all the ability in the world, be the best player in your team or school, but mentality takes you forward," he said.

“Being the best behaved really shows that you want to be here and want to be the best you can. Without good behaviour I don't think you can go far.

“League One is a very physical league so you have to mentally adapt to that. It makes you become a man, so taking my experiences from League One I think can benefit me in the Premier League."
