It's the sensible thing to do.
Assuming he plays a full season at Watford and does well (which I think he will), we can probable sell him for several million. Instead of letting him go for free.
It's a gamble, but a relatively low risk one.
It is the most sensible option. We will get a fee if he joins Watford permanently and, if not, we can loan him out again so the risk is very low. As for £6m....Some of the numbers quoted for his salary have, seemingly, been plucked out of the arse of an innumerate goose so let's take that with a pinch of salt.Why on earth would we extend that contract? Absolutely insane.
We've been trying to sell him for two years now without success. Are we seriously gambling on him doing so well at Watford that they spend proper money for him?
By extending his contract we're committing to give him >£6m as it is. Just let him go next summer.

Anyway, best of luck to the lad. Didn’t quite develop as well as initially hoped but still played a good amount of matches for the club and will no doubt go on to have a solid career.
