Moving from Granada CF to Watford in the summer of 2017, Dimitri Foulquier has yet to make an appearances for the Hornets, loaned to Strasbourg and now Getafe instead.

Currently fourth in La Liga, the Spanish side have been impressing this season, and Foulquier has played a large part in their success, making 21 appearances in all competitions, mostly down the right of their midfield.

Bagging himself three goals and an assist along the way too, the 25-year-old could prove to be a useful player for Watford in the future should Javi Gracia decide to use him going forward, but that isn’t something the right-back is thinking about right now.

Speaking to FuriaLiga over the weekend, Foulquier first opened up about how the transfer to Getafe came about.

He said: “I spent four years in Spain with Granada. La Liga is league that I got to know well and where I felt I was personally improving in. It’s true that in the past three seasons, I’ve known injuries that haven stopped me in my tracks.

“That meant that after my year in France with Strasbourg, I wanted to return to La Liga. When the Getafe opportunity presented itself, I didn’t hesitate. I’m happy to be here”.

As for what his future holds, it’s entirely up to Watford.

He explained: “I’m loaned without a view to buy, but I’m not really thinking about that. First of all, we need to finish the season and I need to stay physically fit. The rest will come naturally”.

Foulquier was part of the France U20 team that won the World Cup in 2013 alongside the likes of Paul Pogba, Florian Thauvin and Alphonse Aréola.
