TOTTENHAM are considering a shock one-year loan deal to land Watford striker Troy Deeney, according to reports.
The veteran striker is considering leaving Vicarage Road this summer following the club's relegation to the Championship.2Troy Deeney could be heading to Spurs on a season-long loanCredit: Reuters
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is also in the market for a new striker as back-up for frontman Harry Kane.
His attack has been left threadbare after sanctioning Troy Parrott's loan move to Millwall.
Following Watford's relegation, 32-year-old Deeney hinted of a possible move away after ten years at the North London club.
He said: "I honestly don't know if this is going to be my last game at Watford or in the Premier League.
“If I do ultimately stop playing for Watford as of now I've had a great run.
“Things happen in football. I have been here 10 years.
“If it is my time to go, it is my time to go.”
According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham are understood to have made contact with Watford as they consider their options.
A move to Spurs would certainly tempt Deeney especially because of their fierce rivalry with Arsenal.
The outspoken forward and the Gunners have their own bitter relationship following comments he made in 2017 when he claimed they lacked cojones.2 Most read in FootballWEATHER THE STORMHow Kieron Dyer ended up at Mayweather's mansion with 'women everywhere'PicturedSOR SUBJECTNeymar's ex-girlfriend Soraja Vucelic almost pops out of dress in steamy selfieUS INTERESTWho is Henry Mauriss and what is Toon takeover rival to Bin Salman’s net worth?GossipHOME AWAY FROM ROMESmalling to return to Utd and will NOT play in Europa League for RomaPicturedGUNNER GO WILDArsenal fans take to streets to celebrate after historic 14th FA Cup winPicturedPAIGE TURNERWilfried Zaha and girlfriend Paige Bannister relax on yacht on Dubai holiday

Deeney scored 133 goals in 398 matches for the Hornets but played the final matches of the latest campaign with a knee injury.

The 23-year-old has established himself as a huge fan favourite following his £25million move from Celtic last summer.
Tierney endured a difficult first few months in London due to injuries but has been a huge success since the Premier League's restart.ARSENAL NEWS LIVE: Click here for the latest Gunners news
He was named Arsenal's Player of the Month for June by fans who also tipped him as a future Gunners captain.
Tierney was hailed for his down to earth nature after he was pictured carrying his gear in a Tesco bag before playing Sheffield United.
His No.3 strip is the most popular choice since the 2020/21 kit release last month, but starlet Bukayo Saka is surprisingly the second-best seller so far.
The versatile academy graduate enjoyed a stunning breakthrough campaign at Arsenal as he notched 11 goals and four assists.
The 18-year-old had worn the No.77 shirt but has now been handed the prestigious No.7 jersey previously worn by Robert Pires and Alexis Sanchez.
And that is enough to see Saka's kit shift more than FA Cup final hero Aubameyang in third.
The 31-year-old's two goals helped his side see of Chelsea to win the silverware but doubts remain over his long-term future.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is desperate for Aubameyang to stay, but some fans may be erring on the side of caution in terms of shirt sales in case he doesn't.

Hector Bellerin is fifth, just ahead of record signing Nicolas Pepe, keeper Bernd Leno and teenage starlet Gabriel Martinelli.
Despite fans not expecting to see Mesut Ozil play much football in Arsenal's new kit next season, the club's highest paid star is in the top ten.
