QPR are joining the battle for Watford striker Troy Deeney.

The Daily Mail says QPR are poised to make their move for Deeney.

Leicester yesterday offered £6.5m but that has been rejected.

A deal could be struck involving Leicester midfielder Andy King going the other way but Burnley and Swansea may yet re-enter the bidding for Deeney.

Watford have been encouraged by Fulham agreeing to pay Leeds up to £11m for Ross McCormack and Leicester up to £10m for Brighton’s Leonardo Ulloa.

Watford believe Deeney’s goalscoring record compares favourably with those two and hence will hold out for a similar price.
