LA Galaxy set to swoop in for Super Eagles star

The Nigeria international has struggled to get enough playing time in the Premier League this season, and the former MLS champions are looking to lure him

American Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy is looking to sign Super Eagles vice-captain William Troost-Ekong from Watford on a loan deal.

Troost-Ekong was brilliant for Watford in their promotion from the Championship to the Premier League last season. However, he has struggled to replicate such performances this season.

The Watford defender has struggled for game time since the appointment of manager Roy Hodgson. Troost-Ekong hasn’t kicked a ball for the Hornets since their 1-0 to Tottenham on the 1st of January.

In fact, Watford has conceded in all the Premier League games that the Nigeria international has featured in.

However, Troost-Ekong could be on his way out of Vicarage road soon, as CBS journalist Roger Gonzalez reports that LA Galaxy is looking to secure his services on a loan deal.

The Major League Soccer side is looking to add to their squad, and they have identified the Udinese man as a suitable option.

The 28-year-old still has three years left on his Watford contract.
