The 26-year-old has emerged as a hot property on the transfer market this summer after a pair of very successful seasons at Vicarage Road.

The former Walsall man scored 20 goals in all competitions in the 2012/13 season and then bagged 25 last term.

Aston Villa, Newcastle and Burnley are other top-flight clubs who are believed to be interested in Deeney, who joined Watford in 2010.

And clubs seen as possible leading Championship promotion contenders in the form of Norwich, Fulham, Wigan and Nottingham Forest are also reportedly monitoring the prolific forward.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
