Former Preston North End talent Elliot Watt is in the League Two Team of the Season having impressed for Salford City.

Watt was born in Preston and joined the North End ranks after spells with Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers.

The midfielder decided to leave in 2016 though, securing a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Watt gave some strong comments about  his exit on Wolves’ official website; he wrote a letter to his 15-year-old self suggesting that signing a deal with PNE wouldn’t be good for him.

The move to Wolves didn’t bring around first-team football and he moved on to Bradford City after a loan spell at Carlisle United.

Watt showed some promise with the Bantams but his career has gone to another level with Salford City.

The 23-year-old has racked up a ridiculous 15 assists this season, proving to be the creative hub of a promotion-chasing Salford side.

Watt has now become one of the best signings of the Gary Neville era at Salford and his performances have been recognised.

The EFL League Two team of the Season was released earlier this week and Watt was included in the midfield.

It would have been difficult to leave Watt out after racking up so many assists and his place is absolutely deserved.

Watt will hope to win promotion to League One through the playoffs, but he could end up even higher than that yet.

Football League World claimed in March that Ipswich Town are looking into signing Watt this summer.

The Tractor Boys are heading for promotion to the Championship and Watt could be snapped up to bolster Kieran McKenna’s midfield.

That would see Watt feature against PNE next season – and he would no doubt love to try and prove that he made the right decision by leaving.
