Watford have secured the services striker Andre Gray from Burnley for an undisclosed club record fee – thought 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.

He joined Burnley from Brentford for £9m in 2015 and was a key part of Sean Dyche’s 2016 Championship-winning team.
