The Watford striker had been linked with a move to West Bromwich Albion.

Watford striker Troy Deeney has been heavily linked with a move away from the club during this month’s transfer window amidst reported interest from West Bromwich Albion, but it now appears that he’s set to stay at Vicarage Road.

As reported by Sky Sports, Deeney will remain at Watford and the news will surely provide the club with a significant boost.

Deeney isn’t the most prolific player – he has scored just twice in 15 Premier League appearances this season – but his experience and determination are useful assets for Watford.

The club captain, Deeney has been a Watford player since 2010, during which time he has amassed more than 300 appearances.

Deeney’s physical presence greatly helps Watford and he will hope to play a significant part in the remainder of the campaign, with his club determined to preserve their Premier League status.

Watford are currently in 11th place in the top flight, three points above the drop zone, and new manager Javi Gracia will have to make good use of all the options at his disposal if he is to keep The Hornets in the top flight.
