Troy Deeney has offered some advice to people speculating about his future: “If you don’t know nothing, keep quiet.”
Conflicting reports in recent days have suggested that Watford captain Deeney is on the verge of completing a transfer to Premier League champions Leicester City, and that he has signed a new contract at Vicarage Road.
It was reported earlier in the week that Leicester were ready to offer up to £30million for Deeney, before the Daily Telegraph claimed on Wednesday that the 27-year-old was close to putting pen to paper on a lucrative new deal with Watford.
However, it would appear that Deeney is tiring of the conjecture, as he tweeted late on Wednesday: “Funny how a couple of days ago I had left for 30 million and today I’m signing a new contract if you don’t know nothing keep quiet thanks.”

Deeney went on to rubbish the report that he has agreed a new contract with Watford, describing the piece as “nonsense”.
The striker scored 13 goals in 38 Premier League appearances last season.
