July 2 (Reuters) - Watford have completed the signing of Adam Masina from Italian club Bologna on a five-year contract, the Premier League club said on Monday.
Morocco-born Masina has made 131 appearances for Bologna and has represented Italy at Under-21 level.
He will compete with Jose Holebas and Marvin Zeegelaar for a starting spot in manager Javi Gracia’s defence.
Masina is Watford’s fourth signing of the close season after Gerard Deulofeu’s permanent move from Barcelona, Ben Wilmot’s arrival from English fourth-tier side Stevenage and defender Marc Navarro’s move from Espanyol. (Reporting by Arjun Panchadar in Bengaluru, editing by Ed Osmond)
