London - Watford have signed Morocco winger Nordin Amrabat from Spanish side Malaga, the Premier League club announced on Monday.

Amrabat, 28, agreed a three and a half year contract with the Hornets and will link up with Quique Sanchez Flores' squad after Monday's league match at Swansea.

"He has the qualities of the players we like," Sanchez Flores said.

"He can play at number 10; he holds the ball, he can turn quickly with the strength of a striker and escape the defensive line.

"He can also play as a winger because he has that pace and velocity - the power that adds to the options of a team."
