Deeney Assures Watford Partnership With Ighalo Not Ending Too Soon

Deeney Assures Watford Partnership With Ighalo Not Ending Too Soon

Watford captain Troy Deeney is not ready to ditch his strike partnership with Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo in the wake of transfer rumours linking him to Arsenal.

Deeney has confirmed that he will not move this January because there is a project at the Hornets while also dispelling talks of Ighalo also jumping ship with the Nigerian said to be interested with a move to Manchester United.

Deeney told talkSPORT: "No, no, no. We have still got a project to complete. The pleasing thing from my point of view and from Iggy's is people want us. 


"That (interests in both forwards) shows that we have been doing something right for the past five, six months.

"But we have got a project to complete and the gaffer has stated before that whatever happens in the summer, will happen in the summer."

Deeney however reveals his son's wishes for him to move to Premier League rivals Arsenal.

"It is very flattering. My son is an Arsenal fan, so he read it in the paper the other day and I don't think he is happy that I am staying at Watford.

"He doesn't understand that it is not FIFA and you can't change (clubs) the same day," the striker said.

On Ighalo's supposed Manchester United attraction, the England international who waited until late October to register his first top-flight goal believes the Eagles striker who has scored 14 Premier League goals is quoted out of context.

"I think his comments (about United) were taken out of context a little bit. He isn't going to leave in January.

"The manager and the owner have made that clear. I have just seen him at the school run and he is in no rush to get away anytime soon."

Deeney has scored six league goals this season.
