EFL CHAMPIONSHIP

Watt on the radar of Norwich

Premier League player

Norwich has reportedly shown interest in midfielder Elliot Watt. The 21-year old plays for League Two side Bradford City.

The Canaries are in a poor run of form, sitting at the rock bottom of the Premier League table. They have managed to garner 10 points out of the 19 matches played and might end up getting relegated.

However, The Canaries can manage to boost up their midfield by signing Watt to their side. The young midfielder has played 52 matches for Bradford scoring 4 goals.

Watt started his youth career at Liverpool before moving to Blackburn Rovers due to certain reasons. He signed his first professional contract with Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2017. His first appearance in the club was in a 2-2 draw against Cardiff City in the FA Cup.

He was later loaned to Carlisle United in January 2020 and then went on to join Bradford City in the summer transfer window of 2020.

The midfielder is currently running out of contract in the summer of 2022. Meanwhile, this might turn out to be the perfect opportunity for Norwich to bag the midfielder.

Possibility of signing

Norwich might end up in the relegated if they fail to gear up their form. Norwich City has not won a game since November 20, when they defeated Southampton.

According to The Daily Record, Watt is someone whom Norwich is interested in signing if they are relegated to the Championship next season.

Meanwhile, the midfielder is out of contract with Bradford in the summer. Plenty of clubs are interested in him and his agent is dealing with the inquiries about him already.

 In the meantime, Blackpool is also monitoring his situation and is interested in signing the 29-year-old midfielder.

So, it would be interesting to find out if Norwich manages to strike out a deal in the winter transfer window. They will be back in action on Sunday in the FA Cup against Charlton Athletic which will be seen by many.
