WATFORD have announced the signing of Moussa Sissoko from Tottenham.
Sissoko joined the Hornets for a fee believed to be in the region of £5million, according to The Athletic.
Ironically enough, the midfielder is in line to make his debut this Sunday against former club Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Watford welcomed the France international with a humorous post on social media that showed him having a Whatsapp conversation with former Tottenham team-mate Danny Rose.
Rose and the 32-year-old are set to reunite at Vicarage Road after the latter put pen to paper on a two-year deal.
Watford announced: "The Hornets are delighted to announce the signing of vastly experienced France international Moussa Sissoko from Tottenham Hotspur.
"Sissoko, who has 70 international caps and 259 Premier League appearances to his name, has agreed a two-year contract with Watford and is available for Sunday’s meeting with former club Spurs.
"The midfielder broke through at Toulouse and earned a move to England with Newcastle United in 2013, going on to make 133 appearances for the Magpies ahead of a £30m transfer to Tottenham."

Sissoko made a total of 202 appearances for Tottenham and was integral in their road to the 2019 Champions League Final as he made the competition's Squad of the Season.
Watford manager Xisco is very excited with the Frenchman's arrival in Hertfordshire.
The Spanish head coach said: "He is a very good player, everyone knows he is an experienced player.
"He is a top player and I think he would be very good for us.
"Always I say the same thing – we will have one option more in our squad to try to give all the best for our team."
