Troy Deeney has attended the Watford training ground today for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic suspended the Premier League back in March.

The Hornets captain did not participate in phase one of the return to training because of concerns regarding the disproportionate effect Covid-19 has had on BAME people, as well as his son's health.

After conversations with Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, England's deputy chief medical officer, Deeney was reassured about the safety of the training sessions and said he intended to participate this week.

However, an illness, which is not believed to be coronavirus, prevented him from attending sessions on both Monday and Tuesday.

Today, however, the skipper attended the training ground, meeting up with his teammates for the first time since March.

The squad will also receive their results today from yesterday's round of Covid tests, with the weekend providing the first round of all-clear results since the league began testing players twice weekly.
