Watford super striker Troy Deeney has signed a new contract at Vicarage Road, confirms the club.
The Hornets’ captain has agree a new four-year deal, brushing off speculation about his future.
Deeney has been linked with all the three newly promoted sides from the Premier League, with Burnley, QPR and Leicester all failing to match Watford’s demands for the striker.
There was also rumoured interest from other Premier League sides with Crystal Palace, Hull City and Swansea in the mix.
The former Walsall man slotted twenty-five goals in all competitions last season, with him hitting roughly the same amount of goals in the previous season.
Deeney told fans on his Instagram, “Happy to have signed my new 4 year contract with Watford, and put to bed these transfer rumours, eyes firmly on promotion and another 20+ goals, hopefully you’re all as happy as I am with the news.”
Keeping Deeney will mean he remains Matej Vydra’s strike partner again this season, as they netted over forty goals between them last time they were together.
Since arriving at Vicarage Road in 2010, the Birmingham born talisman has scored an impressive sixty-two goals in just over one hundred and thirty starts, nearly cutting the mark of a goal every two games.
