Former Charlton Athletic forward Tony Watt is set for another move into Europe with the player rumoured to be ready to join Bulgarian club CSKA Sofia according to reports by The Scottish Sun.

The 25-year-old Coatbridge-born frontman has already represented Belgian clubs Lierse, Standard Liege and OH Leuven during his nomadic career and he now seems set for another move across Europe.

Watt will leave current club St Johnstone next month upon the expiry of his one-year deal at McDiarmid Park and it has been revealed that the striker is in advanced talks with Bulgarian club CSKA Sofia and is likely to sign a pre-contract agreement at the Balgarska Armia Stadium.

CSKA Sofia will become Watt’s 11th club in less than nine years. The only club where Watt has been able to chalk up more than a handful of appearances in his career to date is Charlton Athletic. The striker spent two-and-a-half years at The Valley in which he scored 10 goals in 56 appearances. Unsurprisingly, Watt was loaned out by The Addicks on three occasions with the player moving to Cardiff City, Blackburn Rovers and Hearts for temporary spells.

During Watt’s time in South East London, it was rumoured that the player was unsettled which may have contributed to him leaving the club on loan.

Watt made his Scotland debut in 2016 but has fallen off the radar in the last couple of years. A move to Bulgaria this summer will offer the player the opportunity to play in Europe and potentially put himself back in the international picture once again.
