Burnley have agreed to a bid of £18.5 million from Watford for striker Andre Gray.
The 26-year-old, who is expected to have his medical on Wednesday, will emerge new boss Marco Silva’s seventh signing. Previously, the Turf Moor side had turned down two offers from the Hertforshire-based side before accepting an offer they could not refuse.
