Hornets closing in on Gray

Watford are set to complete the signing of Burnley striker Andre Gray after their bid for the powerful forward was accepted.

The Hornets have already had two offers rejected for the 26-year-old, who is in the last 12 months of his contract.


 Gray, who joined Burnley from Brentford for £9m in 2015, scored nine goals last season, despite a four-game ban for homophobic tweets he sent in 2012. 

He was a key part of Burnley's 2016 Championship-winning team and attracted interest after turning down a new deal.
