Leicester City Bid £20m For Former Saddler Troy Deeney

29-year-old Deeney has been the subject of plenty of transfer speculation over the last few seasons with clubs such as Leicester City, West Bromwich Albion and Everton all believed to be tracking his progress.
According to media reports, former Premier League Champions Leicester City have seen a £20million bid for ex-Walsall striker Troy Deeney rejected, as Watford seek to keep hold of their star striker following a disappointing 2016/17 campaign.

Along with the Foxes, 29-year-old Deeney, who joined the Hornets from Walsall for £500,000 in the summer of 2010, is also believed to be a target for both West Bromwich Albion and big-spending Everton, who are keen to add to their strikeforce ahead of the 2017/18 season, which begins in August.

We recently reported that the Birmingham-born striker is believed to have a clause in his current contract that would allow him to leave Vicarage Road but only once Watford 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 leaving Leicester with something of a dilemma heading into the 2017/18 campaign.

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