Troy Deeney staying at Watford as Cardiff cool interest

Watford have no interest in selling striker Troy Deeney this summer, Sky sources understand.

Cardiff are understood to have cooled their interest in the 30-year-old following an initial inquiry.

Sources have told Sky Sports News that Deeney is seen as a key player in Javi Gracia’s squad at Vicarage Road this season as they look to improve on their 14th place finish last season.

The Hornets – who have have already sold Richarlison to Everton for £40m during the summer transfer window – begin the new campaign at home to Brighton on August 11.
