Watford in contract talks with Troy Deeney and Britt Assombalonga

Watford Observer: Picture: Holly Cant Picture: Holly Cant

The Hornets are in talks with Troy Deeney about a new contract and are hopeful in-form youngster Britt Assombalonga will also be committing his future to the club shortly, the Watford Observer understands.

Deeney has been hugely influential for Watford this season; scoring ten goals in 20 appearances as his side climbed into the play-off spots.

The 24-year-old, who spent two-and-a-half months in prison last year for affray, is out of contract in the summer and his form has attracted interest from other clubs.

We understand Watford have now opened contract talks with Deeney and head coach Gianfranco Zola said: “I absolutely want him to stay. Troy is one of the important players for the team and we want to keep him.”

Fellow striker Assombalonga, who is on loan at Southend United, was back at Watford’s training ground this week, albeit temporarily, and is also in contract talks with the Hertfordshire club.

We understand the Hornets are confident Assombalonga will agree a new contract in the near future.

The 20-year-old, who was signed as a scholar after impressing on one of the club’s community trust courses, has scored 12 goals in 28 outings for League Two Southend United this season.

Zola said: “Britt is doing really well. We have been following him and he is doing the best when he is going out on loan.

“We have a great opinion of him. We are monitoring him and we hope he continues to do well.”

Assombalonga would become the fifth Academy graduate to commit his future to the club since the summer after Bernard Mensah this week joined Sean Murray, Connor Smith and Tommie Hoban in signing a new long-term contract.

On Wednesday night, Watford announced Mensah had signed a contract extension until 2016.

The second-year scholar, whose previous professional contract was due to expire in 2014, has scored 12 goals in 14 appearances for the Under-18s this season.

Zola said: “Bernard is like players such as Sean Murray and Connor Smith who have a bright future with us and that is the reason we have given him a new contract.”

Watford did miss out on one transfer target this week though.

Whilst the Hornets have not publicly confirmed the offer, we understand the club bid £2m for former Manchester United midfielder Robbie Brady at the end of last week.

However, Brady agreed a permanent move to Hull City where he had spent the majority of the last 18 months on loan from the Red Devils.

The Republic of Ireland international, 20, made 41 appearances last season, scoring three times, and spent the beginning of the 2012/13 campaign back at Old Trafford, where he made his solitary United outing as a substitute in the Carling Cup.

He has featured for Steve Bruce’s Hull 12 times since he rejoined in November, with his only league goal of the season coming at Vicarage Road a month ago.

The Hornets have also had to wait longer than expected to have a look at Zambian striker Evans Kangwa, who has been unable to join the club for a trial due to a delay in issuing his visa.

The 18-year-old, who is currently in an off-season break with his club Nkana, has been in line for a trial with the Hornets for a couple of months.

Nkana chairman John Chiwele told MTNFootball.com: “He is still earmarked to go for trials at Watford. But we have been waiting for his visa to be sorted out which is taking a while to be issued.”

Kangwa, who was leading scorer in the Zambian top flight last season, confirmed Watford are one of the clubs interested in him last month.

He was the golden boot winner at the COSAFA Under-20 Championship in Botswana in 2011 and has reportedly interested South African club Orlando Pirates and Dutch side Feyenoord in the past.

“It feels good to be invited by a big club like Watford to attend trials. It’s an honour for me,” Kangwa told the Lusaka Times last month.

“I am just waiting for travelling documents. I will be travelling next month,” he added.

Pudil , Abdi , Vydra , FF , Ekstrand ?
it is 11th Janauary, we were told all being signed permantley thought would have been done by now considering they have been here all season ,

why no confirmation bid was made for Brady by the club Frank ? every other media outlet confirmed it ,it would be nice for the club to keep its fans informed ?

good news talks with Deeney underway , what about Hall , he is on 1 year deal which expires in summer too ?

Is 'transfer embargo' still in place until a ruling on 'financial irregularities' at the club is made.?!

It's all still hanging and unresolved ( fine, points deduction?) and may be affecting transfer activity.

As I recall, QPR had to wait until last game of the season in their promotion year before they were told they were not having points deducted for allegedly bending financial rules.. are we now in the same position?

I too hoped they'd have signed by now, but I'm also in no doubt that it'll happen before the end of the month. Vydra, Abdi, Ekstrand, Pudil, Fessi, Geijo etc are contracted within the group already (be it for Udinese or Granada) so they're obviously not as pressing as the likes of Deeney and Assombolonga - and if Hall and Almunia aren't also being looked at, I'd be very surprised.

I quite like the Pozzos' line of responding to nothing in the media. I'd rather they got on with actually doing things as opposed to spending their time confirming or denying everything that was reported.

Embargo or not they are all contracted to the Pozzo regime and are all on a season long deal with us, to worry at this moment in time is not really neccessary.
However the signatures of Troy and Britt will be welcome and I can see them both featuring, even in the premiership next season.

I really don't understand this massive desire to sign the loanees permanently. Under a normal loan, such as Chalobah's, yes, I agree, it would be great to sign him permanently. The others though are owned by Udinese. These players will remain in England if they have the desire to and if the club wants them to, whether they are officially owned by Udinese or Watford.

I really don't understand the benefit of signing them. If they are successful with us, and hopefully help us to promotion they will stay with us, even on another loan next year(s).

If we were to sign them permanently, the Pozzo's would still have control of where these players ultimately played. For example if the Udinese manager wanted Vydra for example, the Pozzos's have the influence to make us sell him to Udinese for peanuts. We wouldn't get the benefit of ownership.

If we were to sell one of these players in the future, I'm sure Udinese would receive the vast majority of the money anyway, as we would owe them millions anyway in signing these players. It is just a paper trial.

If anyone thinks I am critizing the new regime, they could not be further from the truth. This is brilliant for Watford. I think we need to look at the bigger picture and include Udinese (and Granada) in our thoughts. If there is a player owned by the group of clubs he will be deployed to help any of the clubs as the Pozzo's see fit. It doesn't actually matter who actually owns his registration. It is just unnecessary paperwork.

Finally, I apolgise for the ramblings but onwards and upwards we go with the Pozzo's.

One of my mates is a big Southend fan and he says Britt Assombalonga has had a great impact down there not just with his goals but also with his link up play. Their fans are desperate for him to stay till the end of the season and it would make sense for both clubs because I can't see him getting much of a look in with us.

He would definitely be worth keeping as he has the potential to really develop over the next couple of years. I am pleased to see the club is showing commitment to some of the promising youngsters coming through the ranks. It would be silly to let these guys drift away or be sold off on the cheap.

I still think we need some more cover in the goalkeeping dept. Almunia's not a bad shot stopper but his distribution is bordering on the casual and is an accident waiting to happen.

Re: player signings ... I can understand the thought see "why would we" seeing as they are already part of the wider Pozzo family. But ... maybe there are P&L / tax or other reasons why they would want to move player registrations around from country to country?
Still, nice to see we're still encouraging our own home-grown talent to sign - this sends an excellent message to other promising youngsters in and around the area.

The reason why we'll sign them is because they want Watford to be the main project as we have much more chance of making them more money due to the Premier League and sponsorship in general and us signing these would be showing we mean business and to stop people mentioning the loanees!

Thought provoking.. Have to say i agree.. Why pay out when we don't need to, signing with a transfer fee at the moment is madness.. Also we would take of their wages.. We need to be solvent first and a sustainable business.. Onwards to 15k per home game, and the loanees signing at the end of the season..

Having said that I will speculate. They have signed, and it will become affirmed when all other negotiations with current players are complete.

Ignorance of the Watford rise to prominence continues all over.
The curb crawler Pleat was on TalkSport yesterday pontificating with Keys and Gray about every club in the Championship. When it came to the Horns all he could muster was "its a bit of a strange one whats going on at Watford !! " lets move on and talk about other teams whos players I have heard of before "
Great insightful stuff from the former scummer and his two sexist dinosaur chums.
Bring back Porky Parry, these two really do take themselves seriously. As for Pleat! I hope he's got his hormones under control. Horrid men, the lot

Your Right LD used to love Porky Parry !

Oh well I suppose I do have a choice !

Talking of ex-scummers.Paul Walsh is actually a big fan now and has tipped us for playoffs! I read that he admitted being naive about the players at the start but after seeing us play several times he soon realised that these foreign boys who he had never even heard of could actually play a bit. Fair play. But you are right about street - sorry pleat!
