Watford chief executive Scott Duxbury has declared that the club will not entertain bids for the sought-after duo of Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney this summer, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The pair scored 28 of Watford's 40 goals this outgoing season but Duxbury was quick to add that they will only consider selling the duo if they agitated for a move.
“We have no desire to sell Troy or Odion,” Duxbury told WD Sport.
“If a situation arises where the player wants to go, are we going to lose sleep? No, because we’ll always find an alternative who can move the team forward.
"But we have no desire to sell Troy or Odion. And I don’t think we will.”
Deeney scored 15 goals and laid on seven for Ighalo while the later bagged 17 in all competitions.
Nigeria striker Ighalo is expected to report back in England on July 3 and could play his first pre-season game for Watford against Woking on Sunday July 10.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
