The 26-year-old is on the look out for a new club after CSKA Sofia allowed him to tear up his three-year deal after just six months.

Watt has previously played for Airdrie United, Celtic, Hearts and St Johnstone as well as three clubs in England and another three in Belgium.

Radio Clyde reporter Alison Conroy broke the news of Watt training with Motherwell on Tuesday morning, though manager Stephen Robinson refused to be drawn on whether the club are looking to sign him at this stage.

The Fir Park boss was quoted as saying: “Tony’s a local boy, a very good footballer. We’ve let him come in and train with us without anybody wanting anything out of it at this stage.”

Watt was previously linked with a move to Hibs prior to the conclusion of the transfer window. Even though the deadline has passed, he is still able to sign for a club in Scotland having been made a free agent during January.
