Hull City were this week linked with a move for Bradford City star Elliot Watt when the transfer window opens up this summer.

While the Tigers may not yet know whether they’ll be a Championship or League One club, plans are already afoot behind the scenes to strengthen their squad.

Watt has impressed at Valley Parade this term, helping the Bantams chase a place in the League Two play-offs and his eye-catching displays have seen him linked with a summer move.

Highly-rated during his time at Premier League side Wolves, Hull Live spoke to Molineux reporter Alex Dicken to get the lowdown on the 20-year-old midfielder.

“During his time at Wolves Watt was one of the leading talents in the club’s Under-23 set-up. He regularly trained with the first team in 2018/19 and made his first team debut in a Carabao Cup tie at Sheffield Wednesday,” said Dicken.

“While Watt didn’t have much more involvement with the first team, he became a leader for Wolves’ second string and was well respected by coaches.”

What’s he like as a player?

“On the field he played the anchorman role in midfield and would often watch Ruben Neves in training to learn tips and tricks to introduce into his own game.

“He’s a very loud voice and has an excellent passing range, as well as the ability to get on the scoresheet occasionally. He can play slightly further forward as a number eight, but Watt’s best games for Wolves always came when he played deep in a three-man midfield.”

What next?

“Watt has thrived in League Two - first with Carlisle and now with Bradford City - but there's little doubt that his long-term future lies further up the football pyramid.

“Pedro Goncalves - formerly Watt's midfield partner in Wolves' Under-23s - has gone on to star for Sporting CP this season and is being linked with a £53m move to Manchester United.

“Remarkably, Watt was probably the more impressive of that midfield duo.”
