DONE DEAL: Southampton youngster Watts 'buzzing' about Morecambe move

Southampton youngster Caleb Watts has joined League Two side Morecambe on a season-long loan.

The Australia international made his senior debut for Saints in January 2021.

Watts has made three Premier League appearances and will now get some senior experience with Morecambe.

"I am buzzing to get started," said Watts."I have heard a lot about the Club and I have been down to the ground and I really like what I see.

"I heard about the interest and I spoke to the gaffer, I really like what he had to say, I thought it was an interesting project and now that I am here I cannot wait to get going.

"My time at Crawley Town was frustrating and short, but playing in-front of a crowd has made me really excited of what is to come and I cannot wait to sample more of that.

"Playing in high-pressure games against different cultures on the international stage has really helped my development, in England you play against teams that have very similar approaches, but when you're playing international football, you get exposed to different styles.

"Fans can expect energy from myself, I like to get forward and make stuff happen for the team, I like to think that I am quite exciting to watch."
