Watford’s Dahlberg set to go out

Watford goalkeeper Pontus Dahlberg is set to make a permanent transfer to IFK Goteborg today before the Swedish deadline of 23:00 GMT.

Dahlberg joined Watford in January 2018 from IFK Gothenburg before spending the rest of the 2017-18 season with his former club. He signed a five-and-a-half-year contract, then extended that contract last summer until 2025.

He is yet to make an appearance for Watford and has had additional loans with Emmen (Holland) and BK Hacken (Sweden) and England loans with Doncaster and Gillingham. While in England, he was brought up in the Swedish national team and has two caps having represented his country at Under-17-21 level previously.

Watford’s signing of Nigeria internationals Maduka Okoye and Ben Hamer, while retaining Daniel Bachmann, has limited his chances at Watford this season.
