Duncan Watmore has revealed that he will look to move abroad following his exit from League One side Sunderland.
With the 2019/20 season now over for the Black Cats, manager Phil Parkinson must now find suitable replacements for a number of players whose contracts have come to an end.
With the winger’s deal due to end on Tuesday, Watmore has now revealed that he would like to move abroad if the opportunity emerged.
Watmore told the Daily Mail: “I want to create some really good new memories on the pitch. Hopefully there is a club out there for me. Whether it be in this country or abroad, I am open to all ideas.
“I feel as fit as I’ve ever felt. I have used this period to seriously step up my fitness game. My knee feels stronger than ever and I feel my body is in the best position it has been since before my injury.
“I genuinely believe that I’ve still got a lot left to give. I am excited to prove to people that I can get back to where I was before.”
After seven years with Sunderland, Watmore has struggled with injuries over that time and those previous problems could limit the volume of interest in him this summer.
Transfer activity could be limited in the upcoming window with most clubs’ budgets affected by the coronavirus pandemic and potential signings will be heavily scrutinised before a deal is completed. Therefore, the 26-year-old, who is valued at £1.8m by TransferMarkt, must hope that clubs will show enough faith in his ability rather than be deterred by his injury record.
