Watford Value Deeney at £35million as Clubs Consider Transfer Swoop

28-year-old, Birmingham born Deeney has been the subject of plenty of transfer speculation over the last few transfer windows with 2015/16 Premier League Champions Leicester City said to be particularly interested in securing his signature.
According to reports on the Daily Mail website, Premier League side Watford will tell any clubs that are keen on striker Troy Deeney that they will have to pay at least £35million to get their man this summer.

28-year-old Deeney, who joined the Hornets from the Saddlers for around £500,000 in the summer of 2010, is understood to be a target for West Bromwich Albion with Leicester City and Everton also believed to be keeping tabs on his availability.

Sportsmail reports that Birmingham-born Deeney has a clause in his contract that stipulates the club would allow him to leave the Vicarage Road club but only once they receive at least £25million, after sell-on percentages are taken into account.

Walsall are believed to have an active clause that should see them receive around 20% of the profit which Watford make on any potential Deeney transfer.

Deeney, who is just one year into a five-year contract, is understood to be concerned at how last season finished under Walter Mazzarri and is said to be ready to consider his options should a fresh challenge arise.
