Watford captain Troy Deeney insists he’s ready for another crack at the Premier League after struggling with injuries throughout Watford’s relegation season. The striker, who has been at Vicarage Road since 2010 when he joined from Walsall, is of interest to many premier league club including newly promoted West Brom ahead of the new campaign. Now 32, he bagged 10 goals in just 27 league appearances last term and believes if any top-flight club was to take a punt on him ahead of the new season, they’d be getting a player who is fully fit and ready to go.
Troy Deeney said “I definitely still see myself as a Premier League striker, I scored double figures last season on one leg. Now I’m over my knee troubles. I’m back on two legs. I got ten in the league from 27 games, which was not a bad return. I know it includes penalties but Bruno Fernandes scores penalties as well at Man United. I’m not comparing myself to Fernandes but I’ve scored the opportunities presented to me. How many did Sebastien Haller get last year for West Ham? Six or seven. Or Joelinton for Newcastle? Two. Put it into context: these are £40million players and I only cost £300,000. My time’s not up. They haven’t given me a definitive ‘you can go’ but I’ve seen plenty in the papers saying they wouldn’t mind me going. Even if it’s for a year on loan. I’m a Watford player until I’m told otherwise. I’m not one who’s going to be putting in transfer requests, or bashing the door down.”
