Birmingham City have signed Troy Deeney on a two-year deal after leaving Watford.
— Birmingham City FC (@BCFC) August 30, 2021
The striker is a legend at Vicarage Road after all he has done for the club in the past decade, but it was confirmed this evening, after talks over the weekend, that he would be leaving the Hornets.
A move to Blues had been suggested since that news emerged, and it was confirmed on Monday night.
As well as bringing in someone who has proven themselves in the Championship, this is a special transfer for Blues fans as Deeney is one of their own, having grown up supporting the club.
Can you name the Birmingham City player who has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
Therefore, for many, it’s a dream deal, and they will be excited to see how Deeney performs at St. Andrew’s over the next few years.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the transfer news from a section of delighted Birmingham City fans on Twitter…
