‘Needs a proper leader to bring him on’ – These Bradford City fans react to swoop for 20-year-old

Bradford City have secured the services Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Scottish Under 21 star Elliot Watt on a two-year deal, as reported by their official site

The 20-year-old spent his youth career with Championship side Preston North End, joining Wolves in 2018. He made just a solitary League Cup appearance for Wolves, but has represented his country at under 17 and under 19 level. Last season, he went out on loan to Carlisle United, where he netted once in 14 appearances.

“I am buzzing to be here and cannot wait to get going in pre-season,” he told the club’s official site. “From the minute I heard Bradford City was interested, it was straight ahead. I wanted to get the deal done.

“The size of the club speaks for itself and we should not really be in the division we are. I am here to work hard and help get this club where it deserves to be.”

Having recently secured a swoop for Callum Cooke, Bradford’s squad is beginning to take shape and manager Stuart McCall revealed his delight at this latest signing.

“Elliot is a player I have had my eye on for quite a while, now. I knew of him when he was at Preston as a kid, and then when he went to Wolves.

“He is very hungry and wants to get out and make his mark. He is a really technically-gifted ball player who has international experience at youth level with Scotland. Even though he still had another year left on his contract, Wolves were happy to let him get out and play football, and we have high hopes for him.”

Bradford supporters seem delighted with the move, which seems to signal a real intent to go for promotion this coming season.

To celebrate the protracted and drawn-out end to the top-flight season, we’re taking you back to your youth with a look at stars of the past; how many of these former stars can you name?
