Watford release new statement regarding striker Troy Deeney
Watford have released a statement confirming they will be retaining the services of Troy Deeney, who was this week released from prison.
The statement read: "Watford FC is to retain the registration of Troy Deeney.
The Hornets welcomed the striker’s recent independent apology – however it was genuine remorse shown in a face-to-face environment, coupled with a serious commitment to rehabilitation on all levels, which was just as key to his retention.
This decision has been taken after extensive discussions between senior club officials, Deeney himself and his representatives.
The club believes it can play a key role in facilitating Deeney’s rehabilitation into a professional working environment, and will be closely monitoring all aspects of the forward’s activities connected with Watford FC.
No further comment will be made by any individual official."
