Burnley have this afternoon confirmed that Andre Gray has now left the club and signed for Watford.

A reported fee of £11million rising to potentially £18million was speculated earlier in the day and whilst undisclosed officially, it is Watford’s new record spend and Burnley class it as a fee ranking as one of the biggest received in our history.

We had handed Gray a substantially improved offer to stay earlier this summer with him going into his final 12 months, but the 26 year old favoured the move.

With good spending ourselves this summer, that’ll help rebalance the books as we go into the new Premier League season and he leaves us having scored 33 goals in two years following his arrival from Brentford.
