With speculation surrounding an impending bid from Premier League Champions Leicester City for skipper Troy Deeney, that speculation kicked up a gear earlier today as it was being reported that Watford had declined an offer said to be in the region of £15 to £20million.

With the 27 year old scoring 15 times last year, a number of outlets, such as The Mirror, are saying that £15million comes nowhere near Watford’s valuation – which stands at around the £30million mark – so as far as the club are concerned, he’s simply not for sale.

The Watford Observer report that Deeney isn’t pushing for a move even though Leicester could offer Champions League football this term, but that’s directly contradicted by the Mirror who claim he has been slightly frustrated by Watford’s straight dismissal of their offer because he wants European action.

The Mirror cite the history with the player and the way we’ve stuck by him, and reference the new long term contract he signed that sees him contracted for the next four years.

Personally I’m more inclined to believe the Observers angle on this, but then I am biased – I’d doubt the Mirror if they told me my name.
