Two Premier League clubs interested in Watford's Troy Deeney

Watford's Troy Deeney is reportedly open for a move away from the Hornets before the end of the extended EFL transfer window, and two clubs in particular are chasing his signature.


West Ham United are reportedly competing with West Bromwich Albion to sign the veteran forward, who has spoken of the fact that he will be letting the club decide his future, but will not push for a move.


Both clubs have inquired about the 32-year-old, with Watford being open to listen to all kinds of offers for the Englishman, both loan moves and permanent moves.


The Hornets are in the Championship this season after they were relegated from the Premier League last season.


Watford are looking to bounce back and return to the Premier League as soon as possible, and they have not been shy with regards to transfers out of the club, having already got rid of the likes of Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu, whilst also being set to sell talented winger Ismaila Sarr.


Getting Deeney off the wage bill could prove to be vital for their season, as it will allow them to recruit younger players that are on the up, not players that are at the end of their career like Deeney.


Deeney has played 399 games for Watford, scoring 133 goals in the process, but he has only featured in one game so far this season, with that being just one minute against Luton Town in the Championship.
