Watford Sign Andre Gray From Burnley For Club Record Fee

Striker Andre Gray has joined Watford from Premier League rivals Burnley for an undisclosed club-record fee, believed to be about £18.5m.

 

The 26-year-old has signed a five-year deal with the Hornets, who previously had two offers rejected.

 

Gray was in the final 12 months of his contract with Burnley and had turned down a new deal at Turf Moor.

 

Gray joined Burnley from Brentford in a £9 million move in 2015 and scored 33 goals over two seasons at Turf Moor, including nine goals last season, despite a four-game ban for homophobic tweets he sent in 2012.

 

The pacy frontman scored 23 goals in the previous campaign when Burnley were promoted from the Championship.
