Deeney | Important Update On Club Captain
CONVERSATIONS have continued between Watford FC and Troy Deeney throughout the summer.
“This club really means business and I want to be part of this,” Deeney said today.
“I’ve listened carefully to everything the club has had to say to me recently.
“We’ve talked things through in a sensible way – and it’s helped me fully deal with lots of my own thoughts.
“When you’re right in the middle of something, maybe you take it for granted how quickly things are moving forward. I don’t think I’ve done that; but by talking it over it’s clear that Watford isn’t ever going to settle for second-best – and that’s how I want to feel about my career so it works for me.”
Scott Duxbury, the Hornets’ CEO, said: “It’s been important to have considered discussions.
“Views have been shared and debated and there has always been a healthy dialogue between myself, Troy and his agent.
“Making big decisions is part of the accountability that comes with running a football club, and I’m aware of that.
“But for a player it’s perhaps even more crucial, because it’s about defining the future for you and your family, both professionally and personally.
“I have total respect for the time and diligence Troy has shown in coming to the conclusion he has.”
Watford FC is pleased to confirm that the result of these conversations is that Troy Deeney has signed a new five-year contract at Vicarage Road.
Pre-season training begins this Monday, July 4.
