Motherwell striker Tony Watt looks set to quit Fir Park at the end of the season after talks over a new contract reportedly broke down.

According to the Scottish Sun, talks between Watt’s representatives and ‘Well chief executive Alan Burrows ended “amicably” with both sides too far apart to come to an agreement.

However, Motherwell fans won’t need to worry about losing him next month as there is said to be an “understanding” that the former Celtic kid will stay at Fir Park and see out the final six months of his contract.

Watt has become a big favourite with the Motherwell fans since signing for the Steelmen after a stint with CSKA Sofia in February 2020.


The striker is currently the Premiership’s joint-top goalscorer and has nine goals to his name for Graham Alexander’s side this season.

The 27-year-old’s form has seen him touted for a possible return to the Scotland set-up ahead of the World Cup playoffs in March and news of his contract talks breaking down is sure to alert a host of clubs north and south of the border.

Watt will face former side Celtic tomorrow afternoon when Motherwell make the trip to Parkhead and he’ll be hoping to maintain his excellent form as the Steelmen look to close the five-point gap to Hearts in third place.
