Etebo arrived in England as an intriguing prospect back in 2018 from Portuguese side Feirense where he played 51 times for Stoke City across all competitions.
Former Warri Wolves ace made nine appearances for Watford six of which came in the opening games of the campaign but a long-term injury hindered his chances of getting a permanent deal at Vicarage Road this summer.
Etebo is in the final year of his contract at Stoke City as he will be heading for his third spell outside the Potters since moving to England in 2018, after spending time on loan with the Spanish club, Getafe, and Turkish Super Lig outfit, Galatasaray.
