Watford FC have released an update regarding the future of club captain Troy Deeney, suggesting his time at Vicarage Road may be coming to an end.
The 33-year-old striker, who was made club captain in 2014, has only featured from the bench so far this season and is seemingly not a key man in head coach Xisco Muñoz’s plans moving forward.
In a club statement earlier today (Friday, August 27) the club said: “Troy Deeney and senior Watford FC officials are currently discussing the best options for both parties for the season ahead.
“The striker has one year left on his current Hornets’ deal, and has featured twice from the bench so far this year during this, his 12th season at Vicarage Road.
“Given the significant mutual respect between the club captain and the Board, these discussions shall remain private and confidential.
“Neither the Board nor Head Coach Xisco Muñoz will offer further comment on this matter until a final decision has been reached.”
The club will have to move fast to resolve the situation, with just five days of the transfer window left.
