250k (Possibly rising to 650k)
Aston Villa, Chelmsley Town, Walsall, Halesown Town (Loan)
On the eve of the 2010/11 season Watford pepped up their striking options with the 500k addition of former Aston Villa trainee, Troy Deeney.
Having been released as a scholar at Villa Deeney dropped into non-league football with Chelmsley where he studied to become builder before joining Walsall in December 2006 where he managed 27 goals in 123 games.
Deeney marked his full home debut for the Hornets againt Notts County in the League Cup, with the 'Orns goal in a 2-1 defeat.
Unfortunately for the Birmingham City fan, the form of Danny Graham & Marvin Sordell kept him out the side for much of his debut season, though he was often utilised in a right-wing berth.
However, in January 2012, Sordell departed for Bolton Wanderers and Deeney assumed the England U21 man's place up front, finishing the campaign as the club's top scorer with 12 strikes.
In February 2012, Deeney was arrested for assaulting a student outside a Birmingham night club. The case was adjourned until the end of the season when Deeney, along with another man, was convicted affray and sentenced to 10 months imprisonment on June 25.
In September 2012, Deeney was released from prison less than three months into his sentence and after discussions with senior club officials, retained by the club.
A terrific return to form in the 2012/13 season saw Deeney extend his Watford contract by a further three-and-a-half years in March.Contracted until June 30 2016
