Southgate Gives Up On Watson

Southgate Gives Up On Watson

Gareth Southgate has given up on target Ben Watson, admitting that the player is set to join Wigan FC.

Both Boro and Wigan have had a bid accepted for the midfielder, however Southgate is sure that he will be joining Wigan.

"We think he is joining Wigan. We are disappointed because we have done a lot of work over a couple of months towards that but that's the way it goes sometimes, sometimes you don't get it."

"Like I said, it's a disappointment but several factors came into a player's mind and our league position may come into it.

"He's a good kid and we would have liked to have signed him but we move on."

We have got ideas but as soon as those ideas become public we lose players so I will be keeping that very close to my chest from now on.
