West Bromwich Albion target Troy Deeney was in fantastic form for Watford during their 4-1 victory over Preston.
Against Preston, he was one of his side’s best players. He scored one goal from the penalty spot, assisted another, and also provided five key passes for his teammates.
Would be brilliant for Baggies
Labelled “brilliant” by Will Hughes last season, Deeney may not be one of the most glamorous players in English football, but he has plenty of top-level experience behind him. He has played 167 times in the Premier League, scoring 47 goals and managing 21 assists, and bagged at least 10 strikes in three different seasons in the top flight.
Would you like to sign Troy Deeney?
All in all, he has 161 goals in his career, and he knows all about the demands of the Premier League. West Brom were able to beat Sheffield United on Saturday 1-0 thanks to a goal from Connor Gallagher, but that was their first victory of the season in 10 matches in the top flight – if they want to survive amongst the elite, they will need to do more than that. With the January transfer window just around the corner, Slaven Bilic could do a lot worse than taking Deeney to the Hawthorns.
In other news, West Brom fans hammered this man against the Blades.
