King worth £60m to Watford - Boothroyd


Watford boss Adrian Boothroyd told Barclays Premier League clubs to forget about signing Marlon King - unless they are prepared to pay £60million for the forward.


King has been linked with a move to Derby this week, and feels he has a score to settle with top-flight football after missing so much of Watford's unsuccessful 2006/07 Premiership campaign due to a knee injury.


Boothroyd sold Hameur Bouazza to Fulham earlier in the summer and allowed Ashley Young to join Aston Villa in January - but he insists he will not allow King to quit Vicarage Road.


'We haven't received a bid - and they (Derby) don't have enough money,' said Boothroyd.


'If we get into the Premier League, we get £60million, so unless someone's got £60m, Marlon isn't going anywhere. Simple as that. Hameur Bouazza was a different kettle of fish, as was Ashley Young. Marlon King stays.


'As long as I am here, he is here. He will stay. All these reports are just speculation.'




oh dear
