Watford forward Stefano Okaka has spoken to the Italian media about his time in England after failing to make an impact with the Premier League side.

The former Italy international was this week loaned to Udinese for the remainder of the season.

TMW have reported on comments the Watford player made in his presentation press conference: “I bring a lot of things from England, it was a nice and difficult experience, I had some physical problems and maybe we could manage some situations better. It wasn’t easy to arrive and not to play, but I fought and I’m still here to try and reach my dreams.”

Okaka signed for Watford from Sampdoria in 2016, but this season again the player hasn’t been involved that much for the English club.

The forward has seen just 38 minutes of action this campaign which led to speculation he could moving in this transfer window.

There were recent claims Fulham were monitoring the situation with Okaka as Claudio Ranieri looks to bolster his attacking options, but with the Pozzo family owning both Udinese and Watford a move back to Serie A looked the likeliest option.

Okaka is contracted to the Hornets until June 2021.
