Since when is that illegal, am I missing something?! Clubs are chasing their targets publicly or privately. The rules are to not establish a contact with the subject of interest regarding proposed move without having permission from the club he's currently under a contract. And we didn't went publicly after him. No club official said a word about him publicly before we signed him officially and that's the fact. The story went in the press, but the source of information was clearly Watford and not us. They made the whole story public, and we actually don't know our stance on it, whether it's true or not, our club haven't said a word yet.
