After 41 goals in two seasons, Paul Furlong joined Glenn Hoddle's Chelsea for £2.3m, almost doubling Watford's record transfer receipt.
Manager Glenn Roeder explained: "We were just about to put the finishing touches to a new contract for Paul, one he was happy to sign, when four Premiership clubs came in for him."
