Deeney extends Watford deal

New deal for Deeney


The striker was due to see his two-year deal with the Hornets expire this summer but the Championship club have exercised the option of a further 12 months and he will now remain until at least 2013.

Deeney, who arrived from Walsall, has flourished since fellow forward Marvin Sordell left for Bolton in the January transfer window, scoring five goals in 10 games - the latest of which in Saturday's 2-1 win over Ipswich - to take his tally to eight for the season.

The 23-year-old hit the net just three times in 40 appearances for Watford last term - his first with the Hertfordshire club.
