Dale happy with Watford 'bucks'

Rochdale have confirmed that they are more than happy with the deal that they have struck with Watford that`s seen wing wizard Will Buckley leave the Spotland spotlight for the rough and tumble of Championship life at Watford.

Buckley, who just 8 months ago was being touted about as a possible £750k target for the likes of Spurs and Blackburn, has signed on the dreaded dotted at Vicarage Road with an undisclosed fee exchanging hands.

Don`t ya just love the word 'undisclosed` - it hides a whole host of sins and creates a world of mystique and intrique.

A quick glance around the Rochdale fans sites and they seem to assume that Buckley should command £500k+ - even though he is out of contract in the summer - and word is the Hornets tempted the management at Rochdale with an offer too tasty to turn down.

Chairman Chris Dunphy told the 'fficial Dale site "Watford made us a very good offer for Will, which after considering a number of factors we agreed to accept…"

Dunphy, who has a teddy boy quiff going on in his rather dashing pen pic on the Dale site www.rochdaleafc.co.uk added "Will`s move to Watford brings with it financial stability until the end of the season".

And there was us all thinking that Watford were skint?!? Unless of course, half a tube of smarties, some blu-tac and a packet of chocolate buttons keeps the wolves from the door in League Two these days…

Oh, to know the real transfer fee!

Most transfers are paid in installments, should think it would be on a par with what was paid for Graham

I heard it was actually £125k and with lots of options up to a theoretical £300k. their Chairman is saying it `s a £300k deal to appease their fans but it is like our MW sale £1.8m rising to £3m If he plays X games-If they stay up,etc.
