Watford defender Essaid Belkalem has joined Turkish side Trabzonspor on a season-long loan

The 25-year-old moved to Vicarage Road in 2013 on an initial loan from Granada before penning a permanent deal running to 2017.

However, he made just eight appearances for the Hornets last season, before being part of the Algeria squad which reached the last 16 of the World Cup in Brazil.

Belkalem's loan deal includes an option for a permanent switch.
