Watford have signed Pontus Dahlberg from IFK Gothenburg for an undisclosed fee.
The goalkeeper has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal at Vicarage Road and will be loaned back to IFK until the end of the 2017/18 season.
Dahlberg, 19, made his debut for Sweden in January, playing 90 minutes of their 1-1 draw with Estonia.
Dahlberg has also made seven appearances for his country’s U21 side.
IFK finished 10th in the Allsvenskan – the 16-team Swedish top division – in 2017.
The 2018 season begins in April, meaning Dahlberg will only spend a few months back at IFK before he moves to Watford at the end of the English campaign.
