Having started last term in prison after being jailed for affray, Deeney returned to the Hornets fold to enjoy his first run-out at the end of September before going on to find the net an impressive 20 times in 43 appearances.

It represented the 24-year-old's best-ever tally as a professional but, after Watford lost out to Crystal Palace in the play-off final at Wembley, Deeney is determined to do even better in 2013/14 as the Hertfordshire club again strive to secure promotion from the Championship.

"To finish with 20 goals and play the best football of my career is a massive achievement," Deeney told the club's official website.

"I didn't have a pre-season last year, and with scoring 20 goals you can guarantee I'll be getting more attention next season.

"I've got to be bigger and better, because if defenders can get a clean sheet against me they'll see that as a job well done.

"The bar has gone up, but the standard that I have set myself is massive anyway, so I'm definitely going to be making sure this wasn't a one-off fluke."

Meanwhile, Watford have confirmed the number of season ticket holders for next term has broken the 10,000 barrier for the first time in over five years.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
