Watford are expecting Troy Deeney to stay with the club following months of uncertainty surrounding the striker.

The Watford Observer understands that the club are not preparing themselves for any offers to come their way today after interest earlier in the window from West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham.

West Brom sealed a move for their number one target Karlan Grant last night meaning Deeney is no longer an option for them, while Spurs decided against making a move several weeks ago.

Head coach Vladimir Ivic is already planning for Deeney to return to the fold and expects the striker to be back with his squad soon and in with a chance of playing again in the next two weeks.

Harrow Times:

Yesterday, the Serbian said he needed to first return to his best physical condition.

"With Troy it's a situation that he worked alone in the last few days," he said. "I hope that he will start today or tomorrow to work with the team. Troy is a guy who's important for the club, who's important for the team and he knows that he needs to come in a good physical condition to help us. In this moment it's impossible because he's missed a lot of pre-season, a lot of the first months in the Championship, but he knows his job and I'm sure that he will give his maximum and his best to train hard in the next days and to be, as soon as possible, ready to help the team.

"Now it depends on his ability and how he will be in the next days, in the next weeks during practise if everything will be okay and he will work day-by-day with the team. Hopefully two weeks, two and a half weeks he'll be available to be part of the squad."

Whether or not any out-of-nowhere approaches are made before 5pm today remains to be seen, but that would likely be the only way the striker would depart the club today.
