Troy Deeney will be giving fans an insight into the world of football after joining talkSPORT as a presenter and The Sun as a columnist.

The Hornets striker will be writing a fortnightly column for The Sun, while he will also appear on talkSport alongside Laura Woods and Ally McCoist every Monday and will feature as a live football pundit across the season.

In a statement, published by The Sun and talkSport, Deeney said he “can’t wait to get going”.

He said: “The Sun is a massive paper and I understand the responsibilities that go with that.

“talkSPORT is the number one sports station so to be broadcasting on Breakfast and across the schedule will be very special for me.

“I want to add something unique and give a different perspective, not only on football but many areas of life."
