Exclusive: Reading FC player attracting interest as clubs weigh up potential transfer

Published

on

Reading full-back Tennai Watson has attracted interest from a handful of League Two and Scottish Premiership clubs, a source close to the club has confirmed to Football League World Chief Editor Sam Rourke.

The 22-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan at League One side Coventry City, where he was limited to a total of just seven appearances for the Sky Blues.

He only featured three times for Coventry in League One, with the majority of his game time for Mark Robins’s side coming in the EFL Trophy.

He has since returned to the Royals after his spell with the midlands club ended at the start of this month, but sources close to the player have exclusively told Football League World that sides in League Two and the SPFL have expressed their interest in signing the right-back on a permanent basis.

However, as it stands, no deal is imminent for Watson.

With players such as Andy Yiadom and Chris Gunter ahead of him in the pecking order at Reading, question marks have arisen about his immediate future at the club. Watson is currently under contract with the Royals until the summer of 2021.

The 22-year-old also spent last season on loan at AFC Wimbledon, where he went on to make 28 appearances, helping the Dons successfully avoid relegation from League One.

Watson came through the Royals academy, but has made just seven senior appearances for the club since 2016.
