Watford lead chase for in-demand Burnley striker

But Watford have jumped in and agreed a fee with Burnley on Tuesday with Gray then sealing the move to Vicarage Road after completing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

Gray has just one year left on his current deal with Burnley, though Sean Dyche's outfit seem intent on rebuffing all interest in the striker this summer, in the hopes that he considers signing a new deal with the club. However, the 26-year-old will instead be hosting Liverpool this weekend.

Gray, who progressed through Shrewsbury's youth system, joined Luton in 2012 and made more than 100 appearances before moving on for an undisclosed fee in 2014 to Brentford, for whom he scored 20 goals in 52 games.

He went on to score 33 goals in two years at Turf Moor, but rejected the Clarets' offer to extend the length of his contract beyond the end of next season.

"Burnley therefore took the decision to accept an offer from Watford and move forward with their own plans going into the new Premier League season".

"Burnley Football Club thanks Andre for his contribution during his time at Turf Moor and wishes him well in the future".

The general feeling on social media is that Gray is the sort of striker Watford have been crying out for; he's quick, knows where the goal is and suits Silva's preferred modus operandi.
