Watford last night agreed a fee believed to be in the region of 250k for Bournemouth left-back, Rhoys Wiggins.

The 23 year-old has been subject of a number of bids from Watford but Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell confirmed to local paper, The Bournemouth Echo that a fee had been agreed.

Welshman Wiggins will now travel to Watford to thrash out the terms of his contract before hopefully putting pen-to-paper.

After Watford’s initial approach in March, Wiggins expressed his desire to leave Dean Court in search of Championship football:

‘I was told early on that if ever a club from a higher league came in, Bournemouth wouldn`t stand in my way.

‘It is a chance for me to further my career and I think Watford is the sort of club that ticks all the right boxes for me.’ Wiggins told The Bournemouth Echo
