Watford announce signing of former Cardiff City man

Bacuna, who has played for Aston Villa, Reading and Cardiff City during his nine years in England, left the Cardiff City Stadium in summer after a three and a half year stay at the club. Bacuna is a full Curacao international and will be available for selection by Slaven Bilic for their trip to face Huddersfield Town at the weekend.
Norwich City star opens up about Rangers speculation
Norwich City midfielder Kenny McLean has opened up about speculation linking him with a move to boyhood club Rangers. McLean joined the Canaries from Aberdeen in 2018 and has been a regular under Dean Smith as Norwich aim to bounce back from relegation disappointment last season.
McLean revealed his desire to return to Glasgow at some point to Talk Norwich City: "I think long term, it will be back home in Glasgow,” said the 30 year old.
“I get asked that so much, honestly. There’s always talk, but there’s never been anything in front of me saying ‘there you go,’ pulling on my heart strings.”
“In the past there has been more than just paper talk. It’s never materialised into anything. Would I love it one day? Of course. If you’re brought up and that’s who you support then of course I would. My family would be over the moon.”
