Watford agree Domingos Quina deal with Elche

Watford have loaned Domingos Quina to Spanish side Elche for the season.

Athleticism reported Quina’s move earlier today.

Quina had yet to appear this season under Rob Edwards after returning from last season’s loan at Barnsley in the second half of the season.

He had started 2021-22 on loan with Fulham but fell out of favor with former Watford boss Marco Silva.

Quina signed a contract extension until 2024 before being loaned out to Craven Cottage. In 2021, Quina scored two goals in eight games while on loan at Granada in Spain.

Nunez had an ongoing battle with Palace defender Joachim Andersen on Monday night. In the 57th minute, with Liverpool one goal behind, the Uruguayan international reacted and headed Andersen in.
