Watford calling Dja Djedje

Ivory Coast international Brice Dja Djedje has joined Premier League side Watford on a four-year deal from Olympique de Marseille, the defender told French sports daily L'Équipe on Thursday.

Dja Djedje moved to Marseille from Evian in January 2014 and made 82 appearances for the French giants, who finished a lowly 13th last season, primarily at right-back.

Marseille clear-out

The 25-year-old is the 15th player to leave the Stade Velodrome this close season, following the likes of Michy Batshuayi and long-serving goalkeeper Steve Mandanda to England.
