Watford have secured the signing of Filip Stuparevic, according to claims coming from Serbia.
The striker turned 18 years of age on August 30th, and Serbia’s Zurnal say he’ll be moving to Watford on January 1st, as soon as the window opens he’ll be off.
A deal has already been agreed at a transfer fee of €3m and that’s deemed a huge deal in the player’s own country. FK Vozdovac have done so well from the deal that Zurnal call it the ‘business of the century’.
That’s not to say Stuparevic isn’t highly rated, with the same article referring to the youngster as a ‘wonderkid’.
Zurnal are under no doubt that this deal is completely agreed and the say ‘official documents have been signed’, making it clear this isn’t just a verbal agreement ahead of the next transfer window.
A work permit has also been secured, which will have been a genuine barrier given the low transfer fee.
It’s a big week for Stuparevic, as well as sealing a move to Watford, he made his debut for the Serbia national team on Saturday.
