Troy Deeney is a 33-year-old forward who plays for Birmingham City, having spent over a decade with Watford.
He joined Watford from Walsall, and went on to captain the side to two promotions and score 140 goals at Vicarage Road.
He regularly features on TalkSport, as well as having an established media presence with Sky Sports and BBC Sport.
As of 2022, Troy Deeney has an estimated net worth of £20.3m ($25.6m), according to Wtfoot.
Deeney began his career at non-league Chelmsley Town before earning a move to Walsall in 2007. After several successful years on the M6, he moved to Watford for £250,000, rising to £500,000.
In 2012 Deeney was sentenced to ten months' imprisonment after pleading guilty to a charge of affray having attacked a group of students outside a nightclub.
But he returned in style, scoring a famous effort against Leicester City (here’s Hogg, Deeney!) to send Watford to the Playoff final in 2013, however they lost out on promotion to Ian Holloway’s Crystal Palace.
Two years later they would finally reach the promised land for the first time in nine years, with Deeney at the forefront, scoring 21 Championship goals.
Watford had a five-year stay in the top tier, with Deeney hitting double figures on three occasions before they were relegated in 2020. He joined his boyhood club Birmingham at the start of this season, and is now looking at business ventures and media work.
Deeney is set to release a documentary to do with his upbringing and upcoming curriculum changes he wants to enforce to help black history be taught in schools.
He also has the Troy Deeney foundation, which helps children with disability and life-limiting illnesses. Deeney also has shares in Baboosh and Westlake Properties.
