Panic stations set in when Will turned down a new contract a couple of weeks ago, but today he has now signed a new 3 and a half year deal

Excellent work by the club, last thing you want to do is like Forest leaving Lansbury to get to 6 months left on his contract.

If the vultures do come circling, we're in the position to make them pay silly money.

Tweaked hamstring last night, might do us a favour the way he was playing must have been noticed by some premier league managers.

Expected to miss the Ipswich game but shouldn't be long term. I'm fairly confident Hughes won't leave in this transfer window.

Watford "closing in" on Hughes (Derby Telegraph).

F****t saved by goal difference.

Hughes should be a Watford player when he comes back from the under 21 euros.

There's 2 fees coming out about this move so far, sky sports says it's 4.5 rising to 7 million, which in today's market for a young English player would be shocking business from Derby.

A couple of other sources more closely linked with Derby say it's 8 rising to 10 million, which I could live with.

It's time for Hughes to move on I'm affraid, his injury didn't help, but he's stagnated a bit, and it's time to go to the premier league which should suit his game more than the championship. It will be sad to see him go, but he remained loyal along time when so much interest has been on him.

Officially sold to Watford for an undisclosed fee plus sell on clause.

When I've finished crying I'll try and found out the details.

Once again, a long contract means bugger all.

Hold back the tears with the knowledge that the transfer fee will go towards the rebuilding you want to see.

F****t saved by goal difference.

5 million rising to 9 million, with a 15% sell on clause. If we get the full 9 and then a decent sell on sum in a year or 2 that won't be so bad.

Listening to Rowetts latest interview, the driving force behind the sale was Will wanting to leave. I don't blame him, we've had 4 years to get promoted, and you can't expect him to wait forever.

Glen Whelan looks likely to come in from Stoke, Irvine being linked as well so still think at least one more midfielder will leave, possibly Bryson and/or Johnson.

Heart broken to see Will go, but wish him all the best. He gave great service to Derby and has been a pleasure to watch.
