Watford players 'openly celebrating Emmanuel Dennis' Nottingham Forest transfer in dressing room' | The Sun

WATFORD players "openly celebrated" Emmanuel Dennis' departure to Nottingham Forest, according to reports.

The striker, 24, completed his £20million move to the Premier League new boys on Saturday.


But according to the Daily Mail, the squad at Vicarage Road were delighted to see the back of him.

It is said the dressing room "will be a far more harmonious place" following his departure.

And the report adds several members of the Watford team were not afraid to express their delight once he had left.

Dennis only joined the Hornets last summer and scored ten goals in the relegation campaign.

Dennis, meanwhile, will need to try and displace Taiwo Awoniyi up front for Steve Cooper's Forest.

The seven-cap Nigerian forward, who scored twice in the Bernabeu for Club Brugge in 2019, will have watched his compatriot Awoniyi score the winner in the 1-0 win over West Ham on Sunday.
