Watford have agreed a settlement with their former assistant academy director Chris Cummins, who was owed about £235,000 for his part in bringing Ashley Young to the club before the player was transferred to Aston Villa for £9.5m.

The Guardian reported last month that Watford were keen to end the dispute amicably and it is understood Cummins, now assistant manager of Toronto FC, has received close to a six-figure sum. Cummins was entitled to a pay-out after he had a clause inserted in his contract when he was employed by Watford as a scout, that said he should receive 2.5% of any transfer fee over £500,000 for any player he discovered who was sold on by the club. Watford dragged their heels until last week when the club settled following a meeting between Julian Winter, Watford’s chief executive, and Cummins.
