Deeney signs new five-year deal at Watford….

Troy Deeney

Watford captain Troy Deeney has signed a new five-year contract. The striker, who scored 13 league goals last season, had been linked with a move to Premier League champions Leicester City. “This club really means business and I want to be part of this,” said Deeney, who joined the Hornets from Walsall in a £500,000 deal in 2010. Watford have also signed Genk defender Christian Kabasele on a five-year deal for a fee believed to be about £6m. The 25-year-old is part of Belgium’s squad at Euro 2016, but has yet to make his international debut. Last season, Kabasele was the only outfield player in the Belgian Pro League to play every minute in both the regular season and play-offs. In total, the 6ft 1ins centre-back played 81 times for Genk after joining on a free from KAS Eupen in 2014. Meanwhile, Hornets defender Gabriele Angella has joined Udinese on a permanent transfer, having failed to appear in the Premier League last season and instead going on loan to Championship side QPR. The 27-year-old joined Watford in 2013 and made 82 appearances, scoring 10 goals, and helping them win promotion to the top flight in 2015.
