Tommy Smith returns to Watford
Derby County have sensationally sold Tommy Smith after the 26 year old refused to sign another contract.

Smith has joined Premiership new boys and former club Watford on a 4 year deal. The Rams are said to have been paid £500,000 for Smith .

This is a desperate blow to Derby County and new manager Billy Davies, as the club is still searching for more midfield and strikers. Rams fans will also be devastated by the move as Smith was a crowd favourite.

At the time of writing the Rams had not yet brought in any new signings or earmarked a replacement for the versatile Tommy Smith.
