Watford reject Burnley bid for Deeney

Lancashire Telegraph: Troy Deeney Troy Deeney

WATFORD have confirmed that they have rejected a bid from Burnley for striker Troy Deeney.

The Clarets are looking to strengthen their strike force in preparation for the Premier League and targeted the 26-year-old, who scored 24 goals in the Championship last season.

The Hornets did not disclose the fee tabled by Burnley for the front man, who worked with Clarets boss Sean Dyche when he was manager of Watford.

Burnley face competition from West Brom, Swansea, Aston Villa and Norwich for Deeney’s signature.

Deeney was signed by Malky Mackay in 2010 but struggled to break into the starting line-up during his first season at the club.

He turned his Watford career around under Dyche’s leadership.

He scored 11 league goals during the 2011/2012 campaign but the following season upped his Championship tally to 20.

Last season was Deeney’s most prolific, scoring 25 goals in 48 games.

£6 million bid apparently.

Wouldn't want to pay too much more to be honest.

Why do they want to shatter their transfer record on Deeney? Is someone leaving?

Will be interesting to see if Burnley increase their offer and lure Deeney away from Watford or whether they will baulk at the price tag despite this massive windfall they have received.

Looks like we can only attract last payday free transfers on massive wages. Wonder what emile heskey is up to, or what about Jason Roberts or better still Ade Akinbyi could come back and be a great signing for us, he has unfinished business in the PL

Poor Blackburn, they sign Chris 'The Lump' Brown from League One and we are bidding £6 million for players they can only dream of.

If we don't get Deeney I am sure that £6 million will be enough for Rhodes.

One of the few things that Blackburn and Burnley have in common is that we both appear to be only interested in Championship players this summer. Whilst Blackburn are by all accounts penniless and on the brink of financial meltdown they have signed Varney from Leeds and Brown from Doncaster.

Meanwhile Premier League moneybags Burnley have signed Matt Gilks on a free from Blackpool, are close to signing Bolton reject Marvin Sordell and have had bids rejected for WBA benchwarmer Dawson, a lad from Derby who now looks like he's staying there and now are struggling to match Watford's valuation for Deeney.

Good to see that massive £120 million being heavily invested into the club.

Newsflash for you...Blackburn actually spent £8 million on Jordan Rhodes as a Championship club. Rhodes is better than Deeney, who Burnley can't land despite having Premier League football. So yes, I'm green with envy that you're bidding for players that I 'can only dream of'.

Remember the days Blackburn?
Remember the days when you were a well-run club?
Remember the days when you were in the Premier League?
Remember the days when you could offer £6m for a player?

Those days are gone.

Burnley FC are arguable the best-run club in the country, we are in the Premier League, and we can offer £6m for a player.

Right at this very moment a certain Jordan Rhodes is instructing his agent to have a quiet word with the Burnley directors should Watford hold out for more than £6m. Rhodes can sense a shot at the Premier League is coming within range....

Looks like someones going if Burnley are bidding £6million. There's no way he'd be coming as understudy to anyone.
I would guess the board have accepted lngs will go therefore paying for Deeney.
As for Rhodes, he knows where he'll be better of in the long term unless you can come up with some astronomical bid to turn his head.
Just being realistic......

How many multi-million pound deals will Trampburn be doing this summer? What's that? None?

Hmm - lets look at our prospective striker incomings: Chris 'The Lump' Brown or Troy Deeney?? That's a tough one.

Newsflash, Blackburn actually WASTED £8 million on Jordan Rhodes as a Championship club - there I have corrected it for you.

Blackburn - rooting in the bins outside the shop for discarded lower league players while Burnley pick and choose.

More evidence of the gap between reality and the everyday world of a Blackburn troll.


The last thing we're recruting is payday players, we refer them to a guy called Bowyer who deals with any such stuff. We do sell players, even vey good ones because we're financially well managed and debt free. That's why we're debt free actually. One day other clubs will either adopt or be forced into this reality, it's called living within your means. You culd heat every house in Blackburn for the winter just on the debt you're racking up in closed season. So not only do we not take lessons of the flat earthers of Ewood, we show them a way forward for when it all falls over.


Watford will sell or they wouldn't release this, most likley the player has at least indicated in principle that a move to BFC is possible, it's what they really want but can't actually say yet. The information got out on purpose, proabaly to try increase the offer or create a bidding war.


So, on this we have lots to gain, interesting times at BFC, the lights would have gone out over Ewood some time ago but they bypassed the meter. Only a matter of time really.

"Newsflash for you...Blackburn actually spent £8 million on Jordan Rhodes as a Championship club"

They did indeed. They also handed him a 5 year £40,000 a week contract.

Total cost to Blackburn Rovers: £18.4m.

EIGHTEEN POINT FOUR MILLION ENGLISH POUNDS!

Of which £4m of the original transfer fee is still owed to Huddersfield Town, along with 3 years of wages yet to be paid totalling £6.24m. That's a staggering £10.24m yet to pay out, along with a 20% sell on clause which will send yet more cash Huddersfield's way when he is sold.

£18.4m investment in Rhodes.... and you finished EIGHTH in the second division.

FFP states the maximum loss a club can make in the 2014/15 season is £3m. And you think Rhodes wont be sold?

FFP is going to tear you a new one in December. LOL

If Burnley are offering £6m for Deeney and Watford hold out for more, I expect attention will soon turn to Rhodes as an alternative. The Blackburn fans are collectively filling their pants...

Rhodes having to be sold and Burnley having millions to spend.... you couldn't make it up!

No, Vokes is out injured until December, so Ings and Deeney would be the first choice striker partnership at least until that time.

Also Matthew Taylor about to sign from West Ham today if rumours are to be believed!

You can imagine how much Deeney will want to join SD after he managed him so well before. Obviously SD sees him as the perfect big man to play wih Ingsy now Vokes is injured and he will benefit hugely from playing with the unselfish Ings .
With an improved offer for Bryson , Dawson at the back , a couple more yet to be revealed and a few season long loans , we will be up and running!

Why do they want to shatter their transfer record on Deeney? Is someone leaving?

Will be interesting to see if Burnley increase their offer and lure Deeney away from Watford or whether they will baulk at the price tag despite this massive windfall they have received.
Windfall? Earnings through promotion. You know, where you win something and then get money in as a consequence of you winning something. That's the alternative to the cash injection, then you win something. Oh, sorry, silly me. You won't know about that will you.

Blackburn Rovers, always running out of someone else's money. Burnley always earning what they spend.

Spot the difference.
So Sky Sports give Burnley millions of pounds and that is an 'earning'.

A Blackburn supporter gives Blackburn millions of pounds and that is 'taking someone else's money'.

Burnley logic for you there.

Burnley muppets have attempted to take the moral high ground over Blackburn for the last 2 years by condemning Blackburn's £8 million signing of Jordan Rhodes using Premier League parachute money.

Now the prospect of using the same Premier League money to try and sign Troy Deeney and they are practically salivating at the prospect of shattering their transfer record to land a Championship player.

Burnley always earning what they spend? Is that why they were on the brink of a transfer embargo in 2009 due to unpaid debts?

So Sky Sports give Burnley millions of pounds and that is an 'earning'." Yes. And that's because you played 46 games and secured 93 points thus earning promotion. Only then do yet get paid. So, you get paid after the event having earned it.

If cash is injected outwith the clubs resources, THEN you win promotion, it was unearned.

It is logical. Your position isn't. Yours is the wriggle and squirm position, born of you knowing Im right and your ducking and diving to get yourself out of a mire of your own making. Simples.

Yet more feeble attempts by the no-dads who are struggling to come to terms with the absolute professionalism of Burnley football club from top to bottom in all aspects of building a squad capable of being competitive in the Premier League.

Sam Vokes, signs new contract with Burnley
Kieran Trippier, signs new contract with Burnley
Michael Duff, signs new contract with Burnley
Michael Kightly, signs new contract with Burnley
Sean Dyche, signs new contract with Burnley
Scottish International goalkeeper signed as competition and backup to Tom Heaton.

And now vastly experienced and versatile Matt Taylor is expected to sign bringing vital Premier League experience (11 PL seasons in the last 12 years) and ticking yet another box that went unticked following promotion in 2009. Twenty PL games last season, a fantastic left foot, and can operate in midfield or defence.

Another very astute signing from Sean Dyche.

Burnley FC are arguable the best-run club in the country, we are in the Premier League, and we can offer £6m for a player.

Right at this very moment a certain Jordan Rhodes is instructing his agent to have a quiet word with the Burnley directors should Watford hold out for more than £6m. Rhodes can sense a shot at the Premier League is coming within range....

And now vastly experienced and versatile Matt Taylor is expected to sign bringing vital Premier League experience (11 PL seasons in the last 12 years) and ticking yet another box that went unticked following promotion in 2009. Twenty PL games last season, a fantastic left foot, and can operate in midfield or defence. Another very astute signing from Sean Dyche.[/p][/quote]Yes and their fans are defecting now. One I know will not re-new and will watch ‘selective’ Burnley games – if he can a ticket that is. Yes HMS Venky is sinking fast now.

Those days are gone.

Burnley FC are arguable the best-run club in the country, we are in the Premier League, and we can offer £6m for a player.

Right at this very moment a certain Jordan Rhodes is instructing his agent to have a quiet word with the Burnley directors should Watford hold out for more than £6m. Rhodes can sense a shot at the Premier League is coming within range....
Yawwwwnnn ignore me I talk talk bull.
Awwww Bryson has fu@@ed us off, the one decent player we went for!!

"Newsflash for you...Blackburn actually spent £8 million on Jordan Rhodes as a Championship club"

They did indeed. They also handed him a 5 year £40,000 a week contract.

Total cost to Blackburn Rovers: £18.4m.

EIGHTEEN POINT FOUR MILLION ENGLISH POUNDS!

Of which £4m of the original transfer fee is still owed to Huddersfield Town, along with 3 years of wages yet to be paid totalling £6.24m. That's a staggering £10.24m yet to pay out, along with a 20% sell on clause which will send yet more cash Huddersfield's way when he is sold.

£18.4m investment in Rhodes.... and you finished EIGHTH in the second division.

FFP states the maximum loss a club can make in the 2014/15 season is £3m. And you think Rhodes wont be sold?

FFP is going to tear you a new one in December. LOL

If Burnley are offering £6m for Deeney and Watford hold out for more, I expect attention will soon turn to Rhodes as an alternative. The Blackburn fans are collectively filling their pants...

Rhodes having to be sold and Burnley having millions to spend.... you couldn't make it up!
But yet I constantly do :-)
Im so sad I cant stop loving rovers....... sorrrryyy

Poor Blackburn, they sign Chris 'The Lump' Brown from League One and we are bidding £6 million for players they can only dream of.

If we don't get Deeney I am sure that £6 million will be enough for Rhodes.
One of the few things that Blackburn and Burnley have in common is that we both appear to be only interested in Championship players this summer. Whilst Blackburn are by all accounts penniless and on the brink of financial meltdown they have signed Varney from Leeds and Brown from Doncaster.

Meanwhile Premier League moneybags Burnley have signed Matt Gilks on a free from Blackpool, are close to signing Bolton reject Marvin Sordell and have had bids rejected for WBA benchwarmer Dawson, a lad from Derby who now looks like he's staying there and now are struggling to match Watford's valuation for Deeney.

Good to see that massive £120 million being heavily invested into the club.

Newsflash for you...Blackburn actually spent £8 million on Jordan Rhodes as a Championship club. Rhodes is better than Deeney, who Burnley can't land despite having Premier League football. So yes, I'm green with envy that you're bidding for players that I 'can only dream of'.
And you quote Reg Varney and Oompalumpa Brown as your world class signings. Your either mentally retarded or haven't got a clue what youre talking about.

Are you talking to yourself again Barry, you just cant help yourself can you. I think you will find we can afford Rhodes and you cant afford to keep him.
