West Brom are ready to bid again for Watford captain Troy Deeney — but boss Tony Pulis is unsure if they can afford England striker Jermain Defoe, who is leaving relegated Sunderland.

MirrorSport understands a move for unsettled Hornets frontman Deeney is far more likely after Albion tried unsuccessfully to sign him last year.

The 28-year-old is no longer guaranteed a start for Watford and the £50,000-a-week Brummie is interested in a switch back to the Midlands.
