Leicester set for £30m Deeney bid

Leicester City are readying a £30m bid for Watford striker Troy Deeney, according to the Telegraph.

The Hornets have rejected two previous offers for their captain, who has expressed a desire to hold talks with the Premier League champions.

Should the move materialize, the former Walsall striker would become the joint-third most expensive English player of all time behind Raheem Sterling and Andy Carroll, who cost Manchester City and Liverpool £49m and £35m respectively.

Deeney was one of Watford’s stand out performers last season as they beat the odds to comfortably avoid relegation.

He played in all thirty-eight of his sides league games last season, scoring thirteen goals and forming a lethal partnership with Odion Ighalo, who has also been strongly linked with a move away from Vicarage Road.

In total, he has ninety-six goals in two hundred and sixty-three outings for Watford having signed for them in 2010.
