Quite a number of players in the Watford team celebrated the player’s departure despite that Dennis only joined the club last summer.

He managed ten goals in the season that saw the club relegate from the Premier League, but he failed to find the back of the net in the two Championship appearances this term before sealing his switch back to the top flight.

Rob Edwards' side remains unbeaten with two wins and a draw to sit third in the table.

Awoniyi settles down at Nottingham Forest

Meanwhile, Premier League returnees Nottingham Forest football fans queued up to get autographs of Nigerian international Taiwo Awoniyi.

The lanky forward scored Nottingham Forest's first Premier League goal in 23 years and 90 days during their win over West Ham United on Sunday.

Nottingham Forest made 14 new signings ahead of the league season, and it proved significant as Taiwo Awoniyi scored the only goal, while Dean Henderson saved Declan Rice's penalty.

Osimhen inspires Napoli to a 5-2 win over Verona

Sports Brief earlier reported that Nigerian international Victor Osimhen found the back of the net in Napoli’s 5-2 win over Verona in their opening Serie A game of the season.

Osimhen found the back of the net late in the first half to put his side 2-1 up, and then with 11 minutes left to play, he then provided the assist for Napoli’s fifth goal scored by Matteo Politano.

In ensuring the 23-year-old Super Eagles forward was not injured, coach Luciano Spalletti decided to replace the former Lille man who came off in the 83rd minute.
