Watford sold Gary Penrice to Aston Villa. He accrued the club's second highest transfer receipt to that point of £875,000, although a sell-on clause saw a percentage of this passed on to Bristol Rovers.

Penrice's Villa career was restricted by a broken leg; he was to return to Vicarage Road for a less prolific spell four years later.
