Former Charlton Athletic forward Tony Watt is currently training with Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen as he looks to maintain his match fitness ahead of his next career move according to the Daily Record.

The 24-year-old Coatbridge born hotshot left The Addicks in August to sign a one-year deal with Belgian club Oud-Heverlee Leuven with the option of an additional 12-month extension at “Den Dreef”.

Watt notched just two goals for the Belgian second tier outfit and the player recently left Leuven to further his career away from the club.

It has been reported that while Watt is ineligible to represent another club this season, the player could favour a return to the Scottish Premiership and the striker is currently training with Aberdeen. Dons boss Derek McInnes and forward Watt share the same agent who has orchestrated the move to the Granite City. While Aberdeen are not directly thought to be looking to sign the player, there is a chance that Watt could join the club in the summer should he impress on the training pitch.

During his time with Charlton Athletic, the former Celtic forward made 56 appearances while he scored 10 goals. Watt was in and out of favour at The Valley while he was loaned out to Cardiff City, Blackburn Rovers and Scottish club Hearts.
