Watt joins Airdrie Utd on loan
Under 20s winger JOSH WATT has joined Irn-Bru First Division side Airdrie United on a three-month loan deal.
The form of Nicky Law, Jamie Murphy, Omar Daley and Chris Humphrey has meant the 19-year old has struggled to make inroads into the first-team starting eleven.
He will now form part of Jimmy Boyle’s side and will hope to be in contention to face league-leaders Partick Thistle at the weekend.
He joins Jonathan Page (Hamilton Accies) and Nicky Devlin (Dumbarton) who are already out on loan at First Division sides.
Watt told motherwellfc.co.uk, “I am really pleased to get things tied up and I’m looking forward to getting started with Airdrie.
“It’s a big thing for any footballer to train Monday to Friday then go and play on a Saturday.
“I am hoping my three months there can help me progress as a footballer and when I return to Motherwell in January, hopefully I am a better player and can give the manager another option.
“I’ve been at the club for ten years and I am still very keen to be involved with the first-team. But, until January at least, I will be doing everything I can to try and help Airdrie.”
