West Brom Set to Table an Offer for Watford Striker Troy Deeney?

7:35 pm Sunday, 28 January 2018
West Bromwich Albion are said to be preparing to make a bid in the region of £16,000,000 for Watford's former Walsall striker Troy Deeney.
According to the latest media reports, local Premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion are preparing to make a bid in the region of £16,000,000 for Watford's former Walsall striker Troy Deeney, as the Birmingham-born striker continues to be linked with a move away from the Vicarage Road club.

29-year-old Deeney, who has made over three-hundred first-team appearances since he joined the Hornets from the Saddlers in 2010, is understood to be open to a move away from the Hertfordshire club should the right offer come along.

It is being reported that Watford had hoped to clear around £25m for Deeney but are considering accepting a lower offer with the forward turning 30 in June while he also one of their highest wage earners, taking home around £70,000 a week.

Walsall signed Deeney back in 2006 and have an active sell-on clause of around 20% which could see them collect some much needed funds to both help bolster their squad and ease financial pressures from other sources.

Deeney has been linked with a move to several clubs over recent seasons, including former Premier League champions Leicester City, but is understood to be high on the list of candidates drawn up by recently-appointed Baggies boss Alan Pardew, as he seeks to make his mark on his new side.

Troy, a former Chelmsley Town prospect, was left out of the Hornets' squad at the weekend and is understood to have watched the Midlands League Division One game between Chelmsley and Atherstone Town.
