QPR rival Leicester for Watford striker Deeney

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.
