Time rolls on and fees continue to spiral with the news today that Andre Gray has swapped Burnley for Watford in an £18.5million deal.

Gray, who scored nine goals in 32 Premier League appearances for the Clarets last time out, has signed a five-year at Vicarage Road…

Mad as the price may seem on the face of it, Gray will probably be a decent signing for Watford as pairing his pace with the sheer girth and guile of the Deeneydozer looks like a potentially fruitful front combo.

As for Burnley, they’ve now successfully flogged off their best defender and their best striker so far this summer and replaced them with absolutely nobody.

Gulp.

    18.5 Mil is fairly reasonable for a decent striker with starting experience. Especially compared to what Middlesbrough spent on their two new strikers

    Hopefully he doesn’t spark any more idiotic off field drama though

    I don’t think £18.5million for an English striker with at least one season in the Premierleague, almost 10 goals and plenty of years left to play is that bad really.

    I’m surprised Burnley have sold him. Along with Keane he was arguably their best player. They’re looking really light in some key areas now.
