Will lil' Jon be Watford's windfall?
Watford could be on the verge of a surprise £500k windfall that would have the Vicarage Road moneymen laughing all the way to the bank… that`s if lil` Jon Harley signs on the dreaded dotted up at the City Ground.
Ok, so when the Daily Mail reported that the 3ft4 former Chelsea and Burnley 'Mr Versatile` was on his way to Nottingham Forest for a cool ½ million we admit we almost spit out our bacon sandwich this morning - but you know what the rumour is gathering pace.
Forest fans across the web reckon it`s a done deal and could be sealed as early as Monday though the fee seems to be a bit of a mystery with some suggesting it could be £100k.
Still, as much as we like lil` Jon, any extra chunk of unexpected cash into the club coffers for a free transfer signing who`s warmed the bench for much of his time in WD18 would be indeed welcome…
For the reported £500k mind you, the VitalWatford boys would drive him up the M1 ourselves (and even hire the van).
