One to watch: Moses Ashikodi, Watford

Ashikodi_2Watford have completed the signing of Rangers striker Moses Ashikodi. The 19-year-old former Millwall and West Ham youth team player had not found favour at Ibrox since moving there in January 2006, but impressed during a trial at Vicarage Road. The Nigerian-born youngster has represented England at every level from under 15s to under 19s.

Ashikodi's fledgling career has not been without controversy though, even aside from his 19-year-old journeyman status. He left Millwall by mutual consent in 2004 after allegedly threatening team-mate Mark McCammon with a knife. With Aidy Boothroyd desperate for goals expect the player he has described as "talented, hungry and with baggage" to feature fairly soon as the Hornets battle to beat the drop.

Not_mosesI'm not quite sure who the person pictured next to this story on BBC Sport is (at the time of writing at least), but I'm fairly certain it is not Moses Ashikodi!
