Sweden winger Ken Sema from Ostersund have joined Watford for a yet to be disclosed fee. A deal that will last for five years.

Even though the 24-year-old Sweden international has been capped five times by his country, he was still not included in the World Cup squad that will meet England in Saturday’s quarter-final.

Sema shine last season when he scored a notable goal that gave 2-1 victory to Ostersund against Arsenal at the Emirates and helped the Swedish side reach the last 32 of the Europa League.

Swedish minnows who played in the fourth place with gates of fewer than 500 in 2010. They lost on aggregate to Arsenal but became the talk of the competition having knocked out notable European giants like Galatasaray of Turkey and Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin.

“Ken Sema is a great person. I am very happy for him and the whole club wants to congratulate him. At the same time, he will, of course, be missed,” Ostersund chairman Daniel Kindberg said via BBC.

Sema is now Watford’s fifth signing of the close-season after Gerard Deulofeu’s move from Barcelona and the arrivals of Ben Wilmot, Marc Navarro and Adam Masina.
