Watford captain Troy Deeney is in line to replace Freddie Flintoff as a presenter on Talksport, according to reports.

Both the Mirror and the Star are this morning claiming that the Hornets' number nine has impressed in recent weeks and is being considered for a position on the station.

Current presenter Flintoff works alongside Laura Woods in a slot that runs from 6-10am, but is due to begin filming another series of the BBC show Top Gear, meaning he can no longer continue on the show.

While Deeney's Watford commitments would mean he is not available every day, it is thought the station would be willing to work around his schedule.
