Deeney pens new Hornets deal

Troy Deeney has signed a new five-year contract with Watford.

Premier League champions Leicester City tried to sign the Watford captain earlier this summer only to have their £20million bid rejected by the Hornets.

Deeney has played 243 league games for Watford since joining in 2010 and he impressed during his debut season in the Premier League, scoring 13 goals in 38 games as the club finished in mid-table.

"This club really means business and I want to be part of this. I've listened carefully to everything the club has had to say to me recently," Deeney told the club's official website.

"We've talked things through in a sensible way - and it's helped me fully deal with lots of my own thoughts.

"When you're right in the middle of something, maybe you take it for granted how quickly things are moving forward. I don't think I've done that; but by talking it over it's clear that Watford isn't ever going to settle for second-best - and that's how I want to feel about my career so it works for me."

Watford chief executive Scott Duxbury added: "It's been important to have considered discussions. Views have been shared and debated and there has always been a healthy dialogue between myself, Troy and his agent.

"Making big decisions is part of the accountability that comes with running a football club, and I'm aware of that.

"But for a player it's perhaps even more crucial, because it's about defining the future for you and your family, both professionally and personally.

"I have total respect for the time and diligence Troy has shown in coming to the conclusion he has."
