Super Eagles star Isaac Success has expressed delight at signing a new long-term deal with Watford and has vowed to keep working hard for the team.

The Nigerian on Thursday signed a deal that would see him stay at the side till 2023 even though he is on loan at Spanish side Granada.

“I’m excited. I think this is going to give me a lot of confidence, with the club having so much belief in me,” the Nigerian told the club’s website.

“Watford is part of me, it’s part of my life, part of my career, part of everything that concerns me from Granada up to Watford in which Gino Pozzo has always been a father, a friend, family to me.

“I’m happy, all I need to do is to keep on working hard and give the club as much as I can until the end of the season.”

He joined the Hornets in July 2016 for a then-club-record fee but has struggled to make the kind of impact expected of him.

“I think my full potential isn’t out yet, I’m still working on that,” he added.

“The club has seen a little bit of it, where they appreciate me already and I’m thinking there’s a lot more to come.

“I owe the club, the fans, and the team a lot which I’m trying to develop now.

“With time I think I’m going to get to my full potential and the club will enjoy me more than they do now, so I’m just working towards that.”
