Tony Watt - Season Loan ?

Recommended Posts



CELTIC star Tony Watt is involved in a transfer tug of war between Belgian side Lierse and Aberdeen.

Record Sport can reveal the striker is being allowed to leave for a year-long loan and that has led to several clubs trying to land him before the transfer window closes.

Watt wants regular first-team football to build on the success of last season when he shot to stardom after his goal in the 2-1 Champions League win over Barcelona.

Hoops boss Neil Lennon feels the 19-year-old Scotland squad man will benefit from a loan move.

It is now a question of where he ends up. And last night the player and his representatives had narrowed it down to two clubs.

Going abroad appeals and Lierse have put an excellent package together to clinch a deal. He will fly to Belgium this morning to meet their officials and check out their facilities. But Lierse, who sit 12th in Belgium’s top-flight Jupiler League, face a fight from Aberdeen.             

Backed by his ambitious board, Dons boss Derek McInnes is desperate to sign Watt and feels he’d be a fine addition to his squad. However, with the Scottish transfer window closing at 11pm tonight he has a race against time to get a move tied up.           

Watt has been impressed with McInnes and will make a decision later today.

I've seen him score a goal once. Absolutely no reason to believe he'd be a good addition. If anything he'd damage the development of our own young strikers.


Get the mipression that maybe McInnes doesn't particulary rate our young strikers.

Anyway, probably all hypothetical  ;)
