As the nation freezes over, the Transfer Window heats up.
"The biggest room in my house is the room for improvement"
Welcome to Done Deals Daily.
Rhys Healey (ST) - [Watford - Huddersfield] - Undisclosed
Healey signed for Watford in the summer after a three-season stint with Toulouse. The first two seasons were highly successful, culminating in a promotion as he finished as Ligue 2’s top scorer. His third season, however, was overshadowed by a serious knee injury.
Valerian Ismael never appeared to trust Healey, who is still feeling his way back post-injury. Getting him on a free and flipping him six months later for a nice fee (£2m according to some) is great business by Watford.
Huddersfield are throwing some money about to keep themselves above the relegation trap door. Healey is their third permanent arrival of the window and the second striker. It’s a position that needed addressing. Huddersfield are one of the few teams in the league to play two up top, and the trouble with that has been a distinct lack of strikers at the club.
