Watford will receive over £200k

from the sale of former player Will Buckley to Premier League side Sunderland, according to the Watford Observer.

A clause was inserted into the deal that took Buckley to Brighton back in 2011 that the club would get 15% of any future transfer and if the fee reported of £2.5 million is true, the Hornets will pocket £225,000. A similar clause was put in place for the sale of Britt Assombalonga to Peterborough and the club have already gained £2.15 million from his sale to Nottingham Forest earlier this month.

The 23-year-old spent two years at Vicarage Road, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances before hi £1 million move to Brighton. Buckley has signed a three-year-deal with his new club and will be available for Sunderland’s opening game this weekend against West Brom.

  1. Unbelievable, if Buckley is good enough to play premier league ,why isn't he still at Watford? Assomabalonga will come back to haunt us too, so with the monies the club has received for them lets get Danny Graham back as he is only playing in Sunderlands u21s!!!!
