Troy Deeney is one of the better strikers in the Premier League, and it does not come as a surprise that Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion have been linked with moves for the Watford star in the January transfer window.
Watford are not entirely out of danger yet, as the Hornets have struggled for points in recent weeks.
Deeney has been on the books of Watford since 2010 and is a senior figure at the club, but the 29-year-old striker has struggled for regular playing time so far this season.
The former Walsall striker has made only seven starts in the Premier League so far this campaign, scoring two goals and providing two assists in the process.
The Watford striker has responded to speculation over his future, and has been quoted as saying by The Sun: "It wouldn’t be January — or any other transfer window for that matter — without there being some chat about my future here.
“Over the years since that’s been a factor I’ve learned to deal with everything as a day-to-day matter and not be distracted from doing my work properly.”
Deeney added: "A bloke can have turned up for work one day and he’s gone, going off somewhere else four or six hours later.
"So it’s important to retain your focus on what’s in front of you and not get too far ahead of yourself with big plans for this or that."
