Watt Determined To Show His Worth

Watt Determined To Show His Worth

Injury prone defender Steven Watt has stated his intentions to prove his worth at Swansea City.

Watt talked to The South Wales Evening Post about next season; and expressed his desire to be sent out on loan to gain match experience.

This will boost his chances of securing a Long term career at Swansea.

Since Watt signed on a free transfer from Chelsea his time here has been littered with problems both on and off the pitch.

In spite of this Martinez offered the 22 year-old defender a new contract.

Watt told The South Wales Evening Post:

"Once I sit down with Roberto this week I'm sure that is one of the things that will be discussed.

Roberto feels that it is best for me to go out on loan, then I'm more than happy to do so.'''

Watt has been injured since the FAW Cup quarter final vs Port Talbot and has only made 3 appearances.

Sending out Watt on loan to get match experience and to boost his fitness is vitally important.

Watt seems to have the desire to pay back the faith that Martinez has shown him in offering him a new contract.

Some have referred to him as deadwood but he has not shown his worth fully at the club and he must be given a chance to show what he can do.

Chelsea wouldn't have held on to him if was not any good! Just because he has had a bad season due to injuries doesn't mean next season will be sthe same. Lets see what happens once he is match fit and available for selection once again!

O'Leary went on loan to Cheltenham last season and got match fit. When he returned, he was an ever present to the end of season. I would like this to happen to Steven Watt as I believe he does have a lot to offer.

I think Watt has a lot to offer, Match magazine did a well publicised article many years ago about the best young brittish players due to come through, this was in about 1999, it included the Joe Cole, Iriekpen, Carrick, John Terry and a very young Steven Watt so we may have a a very good player on our hands should he remain fit.
