Watt given chance to shine at Cardiff

The Herald - Sport - - CELTIC 1 AJAX 2 -

TONY WATT could clinch a £1 mil­lion move to Cardiff City if he im­presses on loan from Charl­ton.

The for­mer Celtic and Scot­land Un­der 21 striker was sur­pris­ingly al­lowed to leave The Val­ley to move to Wales on a short-term loan.

And both clubs have agreed a sev­en­fig­ure fee for Watt if he does well un­der City boss Rus­sell Slade.

Ex-Stan­dard Liege star Watt is keen to prove him­self af­ter net­ting seven goals in 24 games for Charl­ton.

He said: “My agent rang me and said Charl­ton are will­ing to send you on loan.

“He told me about Cardiff and I knew the man­ager was in­ter­ested for a few weeks so I was de­lighted.

“Cardiff are a big club. I would be ly­ing if I said I’m not ner­vous and not ex­cited about it. I want to hit the ground run­ning and score some goals.”
