Rochdale chairman Chris Dunphy has confirmed Watford paid £300,000 for winger Will Buckley.

Buckley completed his move to the Hornets on Tuesday for an undisclosed fee but in an interview with the Mirror, Dunphy stated the fee and added a sell on clause was agreed.

He said: “We’ve just sold Will Buckley to Watford for £300,000 and that money will stabilise the club for the rest of the season.

“Our big payday will come when he moves on to someone like Tottenham for £5m and we get a percentage of the sell-on.”

Malky Mackay has confirmed Buckley will not play in today's game with Swansea City, should it go ahead, and is unlikely to feature against Sheffield United on Tuesday.
