First published in Sport by

The Hornets have turned down another bid from Leicester City for striker Troy Deeney, which the Watford Observer understands was a £7.5m offer.

The Foxes made the second bid after the Golden Boys had previously rejected a £6.5m offer for the 26-year-old.

Burnley have also tried to sign the player this summer and Swansea City and Norwich City made enquiries.

Deeney has proven himself to be one of the best strikers in the Championship, after scoring 45 goals in the last two seasons.

This is getting scarily close to the clubs valuation now. I think 8.5m + some add-ons will do it. Fingers crossed it doesn't happen

I thought about £7-8 million would have been enough and Can't see us holding on to him now! Transfer window still has another 6 weeks left to run, maybe Pozzo's holding out for a crazy last minute bid from a team desperate for a centre forward.

Having said that, surely he'd stay for another year grow more as a player, get promoted with WFC as LCFC will be in champ the year after and we will be in the Premiership as a growing, well run club, where he is adored!

Looks like he'll be gone soon...no one is going to bid below that now so I think 10m. Although, look at Borini this week...had a bid accepted but turned it down, there's no saying Deeney will want to leave.
Let's wait and see. Wonder if Rang/vydra will work well...little/large could be a good combo?

I'm glad to see the Pozzos holding out for decent money. We won't be able to replace him, and he'll be a big loss if he goes.

Having said that, he deserves a shot at the big time, he's carried us this season and he seems like a decent bloke. He hasn't come out and said anything, but I'm sure he'd like to see a premier league club come in for him. Lets face it, as confident as we feel, we can't be certain of getting promoted, and the chance to play at the top might not come again for Troy.

If he stays, great, i hope his heart is in it. If he goes, Good luck to him, decent bloke, and would genuinely wish him all the best.

p.s. £9m please Pozzos. Maybe £8.999m if you make Knockaert cry again for us.

Not being a user of twitter i can't say i am aware of Deeney's own reaction to this interest in him so if he is making comments this way could any of you share his thoughts with us lesser mortals please.

With this in mind it is gratifying to think that Troy is not stamping his foot demanding to go straight into the Premiership with another club.

Unlike Louvran (?), for example, at Southampton who has said 'his head is already at Liverpool' when he isn't near the end of his contract with the Saints. I feel sorry for the fans knowing that a contracted player wants to desert a good club like that so fair play to Troy in that respect.

Here's hoping he stays with us, gets to play every game and scores a hatful of goals for us rather becoming a Premiership benchwarmer behind Pearson's favourite Nugent. I hope Troy would rather be a big fish in a small pool than a small fish in a big pool!

LC came back quickly with we assume another £1m. That says they are keen and a higher offer should follow.

TD would prefer a Midlands club so he can stay living at his present home.

So many would like TD to stay as he delivers as opposed to taking a punt on a fledgling from overseas that may in time be as good but may not adapt to the demands on the Championship. This is a big problem.

Do hope the Danny Graham scenario still has life in it, just in case. Danny is well worth buying anyway as fresh legs week in week out in the forward line of forwards with excellent CV's to grab that £100m prize!

I'm loving the way the Wobby are reporting this on behalf of the club as it just ramps up the publicity and therefore the price.

Supply is low; demand high and I can see this easily turning into a sealed bid situation where, even if we still don't like the highest offer, we are under no obligation to sell. What it will do though is drive out top dollar bids. IMO £11m is the reserve price.

It has got to be near the £11 million Fulham paid for McCormack......that is the benchmark for the Pozzos.

McCormack had a great season with Leeds last year, but before this he was inconsistent.

Deeney has scored 45 goals in two seasons whereas McCormack is only a few over the 30 mark.

The Pozzos know the business of money as well as football, so in them we trust.

But I would still like Troy to stay and reform his deadly partnership with Vydra of two seasons ago.

Agree with the comments made here. However, in a strange way I think that the Vydra situation last year whereby he warmed the bench at WBA for 90% of the season will be in Deeney's mind. Sure money talks, no-one can deny that, but I am wondering/hoping whether or not he will show some intergrity and loyalty by rewarding the Club that stood by him whilst he had a small holiday at Her Majesty's Pleasure by staying for another season to see how it pans out.

He hasn't come out and said anything, but I'm sure he'd like to see a premier league club come in for him. Lets face it, as confident as we feel, we can't be certain of getting promoted, and the chance to play at the top might not come again for Troy. If he stays, great, i hope his heart is in it. If he goes, Good luck to him, decent bloke, and would genuinely wish him all the best. p.s. £9m please Pozzos. Maybe £8.999m if you make Knockaert cry again for us.[/p][/quote]Agree with the comments made here. However, in a strange way I think that the Vydra situation last year whereby he warmed the bench at WBA for 90% of the season will be in Deeney's mind. Sure money talks, no-one can deny that, but I am wondering/hoping whether or not he will show some intergrity and loyalty by rewarding the Club that stood by him whilst he had a small holiday at Her Majesty's Pleasure by staying for another season to see how it pans out.

Leicester have signed Ulloa from Brighton for £8m!!!! Broke their transfer record and everything. He only scored 16 goals in all comps. last season!

So two outcomes:

Either they don't want Deeney anymore (doubtful as transfers don't really happen that quick after being turned down on another target) and we have let all other clubs know we expect £10+ mil (probably) for Deeney.

or

They still do and have really shafted themselves (by signing a player who didn't perform to the same level as Deeney, for even more than they offered for Deeney) and will have to break that new transfer record by a lot more to get our main man.

Win/win for Watford! I love the Pozzo's!

Thank god, don't need him back. Quite excited to see who we would bring in if Deeney does go. I know the Pozzo's don't want to spend big and they like to go for a player who will increase in value but I assume their policy may change slightly in this case, especially if we get £10 mil plus.

Would far prefer Deeney to stay and take us up though. If we fail again at promotion then we may find we get far less for Deeney next summer.

I'm worried they will throw in Andy King on top of an £8m cash bid with possible add on's. They are valuing King at £2.5m, so lets say they settle on 2m. That would make it a £10m deal with possible add on's, which might just be hard to turn down!

I hope it doesn't happen, but they know we are interested in King

On the plus side, Leicester have just signed Brighton striker Leonardo Ulloa for £8m which could rise to £10m depending on his performance in the premier league. Will Leicester want to spend another £10m on another striker? However, there are still other clubs who could meet the Pozzo's valuation. Hopefully, if a bid is accepted, Deeney will want to stay at the best club in Watford! (The world is taking it a little too far)

It has got to be near the £11 million Fulham paid for McCormack......that is the benchmark for the Pozzos.

McCormack had a great season with Leeds last year, but before this he was inconsistent.

Deeney has scored 45 goals in two seasons whereas McCormack is only a few over the 30 mark.

The Pozzos know the business of money as well as football, so in them we trust.

But I would still like Troy to stay and reform his deadly partnership with Vydra of two seasons ago.
I may be wrong, but wasn't the McCormack price significantly lower but with a load of add Ons? I seem to remember it being around half the £12m it could turn out to be?

Agree, Leicester's owner - I can't recall his name does have money to burn. In fact he has already burnt £100m getting Leicester promoted funding trading losses over the past 3 years. He is committed to them becoming a Prem club - just as the Pozzos are with us but with a different strategy. If Pearson really wants Troy they will meet our asking price, I just hope he doesn't.

Those that think Leicester will come back down straight away need to consider that the owner stuck with Nigel Pearson after we beat them in the play-off semis, even though many fans were calling for his head. No knee jerk reaction. Sensible maanagement.

Contrast that with the guy at Cardiff and what happened to Malky, they did move in opposite directions last term.

I think Leicester and QPR will be ok, sadly Burnley and Sean - I am not sure about, though I wish otherwise.

Think teams coming down will be Burnley, WBA and Hull. Going up ... who knows any of about 12, us in the mix... I believe it will be an exciting division as usual.

I hope Troy stays, but every player has a price - even Luther, a true legend, left when the price was right. and then we got Mo as a replacement.

Just been buzzed in on a conference call by Dux and Gino. They asked what i thought so I recommended keeping silent until the bidding gets close to 10 mil, then bite their bloody hands off.

Should be a done deal by the weekend and have already lined up a certain Nathan Ellington to fill his boots at a fraction of the price, just as long as the season doesn't coincide with Ramadam.

A lot of references here to how much McCormack went for, Ulloa and others... but I think that the overriding consideration will be how crucial he's seen to our promotion push
If without him we're far less likely to go up, then he won't go
If without him we have the players left to get us into the Prem, then it's a case of who hits our valuation
£100+ for going up will be the driving force behind any decision, not necessarily what others are going for

That's what everyone was saying about Vydra.

I suspect that some people are so entrenched in their opinions about Brit that will NEVER accept that it might have been wise to keep him, whatever the highs he hits in his subsequent career.

My old man has always been like that about Frank Lampard. He would never ever accept that he was a good player however many goals he banged in from midfield for Chelsea. Every little fault and miss pass would be highlighted when you went round to watch the footie with him.

My and my brother had a good laugh a couple of weeks ago when he finally admitted grudgingly that he was a 'useful' midfielder.

It took five seperate offers to get Ulloa tho so expect that is how LCFC operate with increments on bids and strangley the WO do not mention that WFC have told Leicester they have to break their new record transfer and some to get Deeney if the Telegraph and other papers are to be believed it is £8.5million with add on's, guess they are still interested in a player swap deal but reckon £8.5 and he's gone?
