Watford’s Oulare joins Willem II

Eredivisie side Willem II have bolstered their attacking options with the signing of Watford striker Obbi Oulare on loan.

The temporary switch for the Belgium youth international will last until the end of the campaign with the Dutch side aiming to retain their top-flight status.

Oulare has been on the periphery of the Hornets squad since arriving in England from Club Brugge in 2015, for a reported fee of €8 million.

The switch to Willem will no doubt be an ideal opportunity for the towering 21-year-old forward to kick-start his career and earn himself a way into the reckoning at Vicarage Road next season.

Tricolores have only scored 12 league goals in 19 games this season as they occupy 12th place in the league.
