Derby County fan provides Louie Watson insight following Luton Town move
Joining in time for the trip to Slovenia, Louie Watson emerged as Luton Town's fourth signing of this summer. The 21-year-old saw his Derby County contract expire during the week, with Jones and Co. reacting quick to secure the services of the exciting midfielder.
Arriving at Pride Park to initially link up with the club's U23s in October 2020, Watson made his first-team debut for the Championship outfit just four months later.
Concluding his time with Derby after making 15 appearances within the senior set up, Watson has been handed an immediate return to the second-tier.
ORH spoke to Rams fan Lewis Everett to get the low-down on the exciting midfielder...
ORH: What will Watson bring to Kenilworth Road?
LE: Louie is a player who has played in a variety of positions, he is definitely more suited to the central midfield role. He is very intelligent midfielder who has an eye for a forward pass but knows when to play it simple.
ORH: Is he ready for regular Championship football?
LE: I personally would say he would definitely have an impact as a regular player in the championship and feel he wasn’t given a proper chance to shine at derby.
ORH: How would you describe his character?
LE: As a character is hard to say but he always came across as a hard working and intelligent midfielder. There’s never been any reports to suggest any attitude or work rate issues.
ORH: What is he like out of possession?
LE: Throughout watching Louie for both the 23s and first team he always seemed to work hard and press well out of possession. While also being able to find pockets of space all over the pitch to try and create opportunities for other players.
