Watford FC have signed Ivory Coast right back Brice Dja Djedje from Olympique de Marseille on a four-year contract.

No financial terms were disclosed but reports indicate it could be about two million pounds.

The 25-year-old began his career at Evian Thonon Gaillard in 2011 before moving to Marseille in January 2014.

He made 23 appearances last season.

He is Watford’s fifth signing of the close season, following strikers Jerome Sinclair and Isaac Success, Belgian Christian Kabasele and fellow defender Colombian Juan Camilo Zuniga.

Djédjé has played seven times for the Ivory Coast national team and also represented his country at Under-23 and Under-20 levels.

Dja Djedje said he is looking forward to working with new Hornets boss Walter Mazzarri, whom he claims was interested in signing him when in charge at Napoli.
