The Preston-born man had spells in the academies at Liverpool, Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End before linking up with Wolves.

He rose up through the ranks at Molinuex and was a regular at various youth levels for the Midlands club. The Scotland youth international made his first and only first-team appearance in a League Cup clash against Sheffield Wednesday in August 2018.

He then had loan a loan spell away at Carlisle United to gain experience before Bradford City came calling on a permanent basis.

Watt has found a home at Valley Parade but Mark Hughes’ side are sweating over his future.
