"The board of directors, acting on behalf of Watford Football Club, is pleased to confirm that agreement has been reached in principle for the transfer of ownership to the Pozzo family," a statement on the club's official website announced.

"Representatives from the family have been in discussions with Watford Football Club and both parties have agreed initial terms."
