One of the key members of the Watford squad these days, Ken Sema is enjoying himself in the Championship.

The Sweden international, currently with his national team, has scored five goals and provided nine assists in the 33 league games he’s played in, with his team currently second in the table.

The winger’s contract at Vicarage Road is currently set to expire in 2023, but it appears the Hornets are keen to extend that, with a deal already sorted.

While it has yet to be made official, the player, speaking to Fotbollskanalen, revealed he had already put pen to paper on a new contract.

He said: “It’s true that I have extended. It will probably be official at any time. It feels good. It has worked well. Since I got there, I have come with good self-confidence. I have played well and scored lots of goals”.

His aim, other than help steer Watford back to the Premier League, is also to be part of his country’s squad for the upcoming Euros, something he believes is has ‘every chance’ of accomplishing when taking his current form into account.

Narrowly missing out on the 2018 World Cup, perhaps the extra motivation is exactly what he and the Championship side needed.
