Academy prospect Domingos Quina has joined fellow Premier League side Watford on a permanent basis.

Out of contract next summer and with no interest in extending his stay at West Ham, Quina has joined the Hertfordshire club on a four-year contract. Watford are understood to have paid around ?1million (plus add-ons) for the midfielder, for whom West Ham will also receive 10 per cent of any future sale.

The news was confirmed shortly after Thursday's transfer window deadline closed. "The Hornets are delighted to announce the deadline day signing of highly-rated Portugese attacking midfielder Domingos Quina," read a statement on Watford's website.

"An exciting 18-year-old who has attracted the attention of some of Europe's biggest clubs this summer, he has agreed a four-year contract and moves to Vicarage Road from West Ham."

Quina moved to West Ham from Chelsea in May 2016. "Attracting a player of Domingos's quality and potential to the club is recognition of the stature with which the West Ham United Academy is held," said Academy director Terry Westley at the time.

"Domingos has seen that we can help him develop and make the most of his many talents. He wants to come on our journey."

Quina, who is represented by controversial football agent Aidy Ward was one of two players on West Ham's books.

The other, central defender Reece Oxford, has been linked with a move away from West Ham all summer but will now have to rely on a loan move abroad to experience first team football this season.
