McCormack is 2 years older and has only scored 20+ goals once in a season. Deeney has done it the last 2 seasons. If McCormack can be sold for £10million then we should be looking at least to match that!

If Dwight Gayle can go for £8/9 million or whatever it was, then Deeney can go for at least that! Only issue is that if he does go, the Pozzo 'plan' isn't to go off and spend that money on another big money striker. They will likely go and buy an up and coming striker for less to try and sell big. Hope I'm mistaken though. In truth, I'm just glad our club is in a place where we can reject offers for our star players and ask for more. What a blessing our owners are!

He's handed a transfer request in so Leeds have had to accept £6 million for him, hence why Troy will go for no more then £7 million

The fact that Deeney is English will add value to him as we need as many home grown players in our squad as possible and for that reason he won't be cheap!

The mention of if player x goes for y, and player a goes for b does not take into account the remaining time of their contract. How long did Dwight Gayle have left? If it was 3 years then that will have increased his value against Troy as I believe Troy only has 2 years left.

If he goes I certainly hope we can get at least £8M. If he stays I hope we tie up a contract extension over the season otherwise his value will fall.

There are other considerations at play than simply "cashing in", There is also the strategic value of keeping him.

Udinese paid virtually nothing for Di Natale and you cannot tell me that there was no interest when he (along with Drogba) finished runner up behind Messi in the European Golden Shoe in 2009/10. The family didn't cash in then, and I sincerely hope they don't now.

The poll should have a "none of the above" option

Spot on.

Who cares what fee the owners gets? It is better for the team that Deeney stays unless there is real concern his form will dip.

The pozzo family will carry on funding the club with or without Deeney anyway and the money shouldn't change their recruitment policy. The carrot o fpremiership income dwarfs the deeney fee.

And the comparisons are always made with players who look over-valued.

I do hope Troy stays but it is his career. If he does stay he has to be offered a new contract and the Pozzos have got to show clear evidence, as soon as possible, that Watford are going all out for promotion this next season. Otherwise, he needs to go to a better team, in the Prem. of course, and Burnley, where he will surely do well under their excellent trainer Sean Dyche, may well be a good step up for Troy.
8 million is probably fine and for the Pozos it is 8 mil. profit. They never paid a penny for him but they are now going to have to invest big time in Watford. The Championship will not be easier this year as the last two seasons. If only Zola had not messed up Bristol City and Charlton..

surely it what he is worth to the Pozzo family in terms of the horns getting into the Prem 10million is not much if the prize of promotion is reportedly 100 million plus the family need to convince Troy to stay with a good deal and the option to move in the Jan transfer window if we are not in a strong postion by then come on Troy the club and the supporters stood by you in difficult times what price a bit of loyalty in return you have your striking partner back go and get the goals for us.

Highest goalscorer outside the prem over the last 2 years. 50 goals in 100 apps in my book makes him more valuable than Danny Ings. So I'd be asking burnley how much for Ings and add sum.

8 million would be acceptable.

I imagine the Pozzo family have already agreed to sell at 8 million.

Why? Troy has had 2 cracking seasons, increasing his value. There are suitors for him this year, all of which have the money to pay for him. Another reason is Troy no doubt wants a crack at the Premiership. Like it or not, when asked "Premiership of Championship Troy" he would say Prem. At this point in time, he is guaranteed to play there his other option is to stay with the horns and hope we go up - From Troys stand point, why risk it.

Cracking lad, I will miss him in the team. But a realist would say the time is now for Troy. Good luck lad.

PS he wont handle the premiership - think about that from our perspective also.

You cannot say that keeping Troy is worth £100m. If it was a guarantee that we get promoted if we keep him then of course he would stay. But it's not. It's a hope. The £8m or so we will be offered, however, is a guarantee and the Pozzos would be mad not to take it.

The January transfer option if we are not well placed will hopefully swing it in our favour but I will certainly not castigate him if he does want to give the top flight a go this summer.
