OFFICIAL: Watford retain Deeney registration

Troy Deeney will remain a Watford player after the club this morning announced they would retain his registration.

The 23 year-old forward, who was released from prison earlier this week, will resume his playing career at Vicarage Road after discussions between Deeney and the club.

A statement on watfordfc.com revealed the news this morning.

It read as follows:

'WATFORD FC is to retain the registration of Troy Deeney.

The Hornets welcomed the striker`s recent independent apology - however it was genuine remorse shown in a face-to-face environment, coupled with a serious commitment to rehabilitation on all levels, which was just as key to his retention.

This decision has been taken after extensive discussions between senior club officials, Deeney himself and his representatives.

The club believes it can play a key role in facilitating Deeney`s rehabilitation into a professional working environment, and will be closely monitoring all aspects of the forward`s activities connected with Watford FC.

No further comment will be made by any individual official.'

Deeney was sentenced to 10 months after being found guilty of affray at the end of June this year, but was released earlier this week after serving less than three months of the sentence.

The striker will now work to build his fitness back up before returning to first-team action.
