Watford striker Troy Deeney has kept his cards close to his chest when asked whether he wanted a move to West Bromwich Albion on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 19th April.

Deeney has been said to be on Tony Pulis’ summer wishlist (The Sun), as he looks to improve West Brom’s squad.

And when asked whether a move back to the Midlands would appeal to the powerful striker, he said: “I still live in the Midlands, and drive down [to Watford].

“All that exit talk happens every single time, the last nine windows. If the club want to keep me I’m happy to stay, if they want to get rid of me I’ll see how it goes.”

Deeney has played a key role for Watford over a number of years, and has become a legend at Vicarage Road.

His departure would understandably be a blow for the Hornets, and they are likely to be keen to keep their star striker.

Deeney has scored 10 goals in 31 Premier League appearances this season for Watford.

West Brom, meanwhile, have struggled to find a potent scorer this season -with Gareth McAuley and Soloman Rondon both sitting at joint-top of the club’s goalscoring charts, with seven strikes to their names.

West Brom are currently in eighth in the Premier League table, while Watford are in 10th place.
