Watson Deal Rekindled?
Reports today suggest that Ben Watson is on the verge of departing Wigan Athletic with QPR one of three Championship clubs vying for the midfielder.
The Daily Mail have the story today that Ben Watson is eyeing a move away from the DW Stadium after not figuring in new boss Roberto Martinez`s plans.
Cardiff City are the favourites for the 24-year-old midfielder with QPR and Middlesbrough also competing for his signature.
Steve Bruce signed Watson in a £2m deal in January and there were initial signs that this was a shrewd deal, as he scored two goals in the latter stages of last season.
A new manager with new ideas, Martinez has opted to stamp his own authority on the side and for the time being Watson doesn`t appear to have a Latics future.
Cardiff`s interest is made more perplexing by their signing of Manchester City midfielder Kelvin Etutu, and it remains to be seen whether they are seeking to bolster their midfield further.
