According to reports from Sky Sports, Welbeck will leave Watford after negotiation with the club. Subsequently, Watford officials also issued a related statement, indicating that the two parties have negotiated to terminate the contract.
By mutual agreement, Welbeck terminated the contract with Watford. His contract with Watford made it clear that there was a 5.5 million euro termination fee clause, and his contract should expire next summer. But he hopes to choose a new home now, so he negotiated with the club to terminate the contract and became a free agent.
Last season, Welbeck played 20 times for Watford, started 10 times and contributed 3 goals.
