Watford boss Gianfranco Zola says there's been no offers for Troy Deeney.

Watford boss Gianfranco Zola says there's been no offers for Troy Deeney.

Deeney has started the new season in blistering form and has reportedly attracted the attention of Premier League clubs such as Tottenham, Fulham and West Ham United.

Zola said in the Watford Observer: "There have been no bids as far as I know. I understand there will be speculation because he is a player who is doing well and there probably is interest in him.

"It is natural but I haven't heard any more than the rumours I have read in newspapers.

"As manager, I would of course like him to stay but should there be a bid, I'm sure there will be other things to consider. At the moment, it is difficult to comment.

"He is an important player in the team and I would like to keep him with us but we need to wait and see what happens."
