Reports on the Telegraph's website suggest that Watford have offered Troy Deeney a new long-term contract in a bid to kill off interest from reigning Premier League Champions Leicester City, as the Foxes continue their pursuit of the former Walsall striker.

The report, which was compiled by their Midlands Football Reporter John Percy, states that Deeney is close to agreeing a new £50,000-a-week deal, as the Hornets attempt to keep hold of their talismanic captain.

Leicester, who defied massive odds to take the Barclays Premier League title ahead of second-placed Arsenal, have already seen two bids rejected for the 27-year-old, with previous reports suggesting that the Foxes are prepared splash out up to £30,000,000 for the Birmingham-born striker, who bagged thirteen goals over the course of last season.

Meanwhile Walsall, who sold Deeney to Watford in the summer of 2010, are due around 20-25% of the potential profit Watford make on their initial £500,000 pay-out and will be keen for the Foxes to push ahead with their reported interest.
