Flying Eagles midfielder Tom Dele-Bashiru is keen to return to the premier league with Watford at the end of the 2020-21 Championship campaign.

The 20-year-old moved to Vicarage Road on a six-year deal from Manchester City in the summer of 2019 but struggled to break into the Hornets’ first team as they were relegated from the English top-flight last season after finishing 19th on the table.

“Hopefully I can break into the team this year,” Dele-Bashiru told the club website. “I’ve been working hard in training and I think the Championship will be a good opportunity for me to showcase my talent, so hopefully I can secure a starting place in the team.

“I’ve been keeping fit over the summer, I just went to Manchester to see my family and I was working with my personal trainer there. I feel fitter than I was last year, I feel ready to go, so hopefully, I can show that on the pitch.Watford's Tom Dele-Bashiru has his heart set on representing Nigeria at the Olympics | Watford Observer

“It’s a good feeling to be back out there. We’ve been working hard in training to gel as a team, trying to understand how each other play.

“We haven’t had that long to work on stuff, so we just have to work hard together, understand what the manager wants us to do straight away and apply that on the pitch.

“It’s looking good so far, everyone’s working hard, working together, because we know what the goal is and that’s to get back in the Premier League, so that’s what we’re going to try to do.”
