Villarreal sign Watford defender Pervis Estupinan on a seven-year deal

English Championship side Watford have announced the exit of Ecuadorian defender Pervis Estupiñán this summer.

Estupiñán has completed a seven-year move to La Liga side, Villarreal, for a fee of £15m according to Herts Live.

The 22-year-old joined Watford in the summer of 2016 but failed to make his debut and was eventually shipped out on loan to Granada, Almeria, Mallorca and recently Osasuna.

Watford chief executive and chairman Scott Duxbury said: "As [Head Coach] Vladimir [Ivić] has said repeatedly over the past week or so, having a squad of players 100 per cent committed to our challenge is imperative.

“Continued player trading – incoming as well as outgoing – is inevitable over the course of the next month or so, given the shortened pre-season timescales this summer.

“But that doesn’t mean our focus will be distracted. Building a fully committed squad of players is of the utmost importance

“In all of this, our priority is to work closely with Vladimir to ensure we leave the transfer window behind with a squad he believes can achieve his objectives.”
