England goalkeeping coach Dave Watson is being linked with Manchester City.

The Guardian says Watson could be recruited to Manuel Pellegrini's backroom staff at Manchester City because of the relationship he has forged with Joe Hart while working with him on international duty.

Watson, currently at Norwich City, has been discussed by the deposed Premier League champions as they look to appoint a new mentor for Hart now Massimo Battara has left the Etihad Stadium as part of the clearout of Roberto Mancini's regime.
