Watford captain Troy Deeney finally resumed training with his teammates for the first time since March.

Deeney has finally gotten back to training after missing recent training sessions with the Watford team.

The 31-year-old initially chose not to resume training because of his concerns about player safety and the welfare of his five-month-old son.

But after holding positive talks with Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, England’s deputy chief medical officer, Deeney announced last week that he was going to resume training.

The Hornets skipper also claimed he was misunderstood from the start and only said he was going to miss a few sessions.

As per the Daily Star, Deeney resumed to Watford training on Wednesday morning and took part in group sessions.

The Hornets will now hope their forward man regains full fitness in time to help them stay safe.

Watford sit just outside the relegation zone on goal-difference and Deeney chipping in with a few games could be crucial to seeing them avoid relegation.
