I’m excited because it was a dream for me to play in the Premier League, and I’m ready to do all the work to make this happen

Christian Kabasele joined Watford in July 2016 on a five-year deal from Belgian side Genk.

The defender developed a reputation as a goalscorer during his first season with the Hornets, chipping in with three goals in just 18 appearances in what was an injury-hindered campaign.

Kabasele built on his debut season – making 28 appearances in the Premier League and finding the back of the net against Everton and Tottenham Hotspur in 2017/18.

Tough competition from Craig Cathcart and Adrian Mariappa restricted the Belgian to 23 appearances in 2018/19.

Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire), Kabasele started his career as a striker with Belgian outfits Eupen and Mechelen before spending a year in Bulgaria with Ludogorets Razgrad.

Kabasele returned to Eupen prior to agreeing a free transfer to fellow Belgian side Genk in 2014. Now a regular in the Belgium squad, the stopper turned out 81 times for Genk as he made a remarkable transition into a defender, still pitching in with the odd goal. 

His impressive displays for Genk saw him included in Belgium’s Euro 2016 squad as they made the Quarter-Finals.
