Troy Deeney celebrates after scoring the first goal for Watford
Jamie Vardy celebrates breaking a record after scoring in eleven consecutive Premier League games
Leicester are still hopeful Vardy will stay, currently preparing a new contract offer for the England striker, and The Telegraph report they could still continue their approach for Deeney even if their talisman rejects Arsenal.
Like Vardy, Deeney has worked his way to prominence through the lower leagues, making his name at Walsall, and a decade ago as a youngster spent time on loan at non-league Halesowen Town.

Deeney was last week linked by The Sun with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, and Leicester's move to push to sign him could yet push the North London side into action.
At 27 he is two years younger than Jamie Vardy, and coming off an impressive season where he netted 13 Premier League goals.
