The now traditional summer mass exodus of Watford players to the heady delights of South Yorkshire has already stared in this close season with Lee Williamson moving to Sheffield United.

Williamson, who was widely tipped to join Preston North End after impressing on loan at Deepdale, has instead been lured by the pull of Kevin Blackwell and signs up at Bramall Lane for a fee of £500,000.

The deal is expected to be announced as ‘fficial by both clubs shortly.

It is also reported by the W`Observer that the Blades have had a bid for free-scoring midfielder John Joe O`Toole turned down by the Hornets?

Are the winds of change which sees John Joe back in favour under a new boss starting to turn at Vicarage Road or are the club just holding out for a larger figure?

Only time will tell.
