PLAYER ALREADY SET TO LEAVE CLUB TWO MONTHS AFTER WATFORD EXIT
Winger Philip Zinckernagel is set to change clubs for the second time this summer, just two months after leaving Watford. The information comes from Belgian outlet DH, who claims that his new club Olympiakos are ready to let him move to Standard Liege. Before explaining what is going on, we better recall what happened to Zinckernagel in the past few months. Signed by Watford on a free transfer from FK Bodø/Glimt in January 2021, the club didn’t make much use of him, so, the following summer, they loaned him out to Nottingham Forest.
That move may end up being permanent, as a €2m buying option ‘could be included’, which journalist Sacha Tavolieri has since confirmed exists. After all this, it’s fair to say that when he was leaving Watford for Greece this summer, the 27-year-old certainly didn’t expect to end up in Belgium a few months later. This will not come as some good news to the club, especially because of the fsct that they would never have expected the player to harbor such intentions.
However, it's one of those things that happen and the Greek outfit will be looking forward to the January winter transfer window already with hopes that they can sign a potential replacement for the player if he insists on leaving the club.
