The 27-year-old Dutchman joined the 18-times Portuguese champions in January 2016 and has made 39 appearances in one and a half seasons at the club. Left back Zeegelaar is a product of Ajax’s youth academy and has previously played for Turkey’s Elazigspor, English third-tier side Blackpool and Portuguese side Rio Ave. Watford travel to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.
