Watford chairman and CEO Scott Duxbury says Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney are committed to firing the club back to the Premier League after they ended up staying following the closure of the transfer window last week.
After Watford were relegated from the Premier League last season, Deeney and Sarr were constantly linked with moves this summer.
West Brom were chasing Deeney, while Liverpool and Manchester United were tracking Sarr and Crystal Palace even failed with a £25million deadline-day bid.
Both players ended up staying after the domestic transfer window shut last Friday and Duxbury insists they are committed to getting Watford out of the Championship.
“From the start I said this window was always about keeping what we had,” Duxbury told supporters at a virtual Q&A last night.
