Watford Complete Transfer For Duo Ahead Of New Season

Premier League side Watford have completed the signing of Ben Forster and Ken Sema ahead of the new season, which kicks off next month.

Goalkeeper Forster, 35, returns to the club after spending two years on loan at Vicarage Road during his Manchester United days.

He joined West Brom from Manchester United in 2011 and went on to make 223 appearances for the Baggies in seven years before they suffered relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season.

He was fined by the club alongside defender Craig Dawson for failing to report for the Baggies’ pre-season training due to interest from other clubs.

Ben Forster has now signed for the Hornets on a two-year deal with the option of an additional year following the agreement of an undisclosed fee with English Championship side West Brom.

Swedish international winger Ken Sema has also joined Watford for an undisclosed fee from Ostersund.

Sema, joins from the lowly Swedish side after putting pen to paper on a five-year deal.

The winger has played for Sweden on five occasions but is not part of the squad currently jostling for honours at the ongoing FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

He became well known in the footballing circles after scoring the winner against Arsenal in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League (UEL) round of 32 clash.

Arsenal were beaten 2-1 by Ostersund on the night but the North London giants still progressed into the last 16 with a 4-2 aggregate win.

While speaking about him, Ostersund chairman Daniel Kindberg said: “Ken Sema is a great person. I am very happy for him and the whole club wants to congratulate him. At the same time, he will of course be missed.”
