Carlisle striker search back on as Sanchez Watt deal stalls

Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott is resuming his striker search today amid concerns the chase for his top target – understood to be Sanchez Watt – has stalled.

The Blues boss would not be drawn on strong suggestions that Arsenal man Watt is the player he wants to bring to Brunton Park.

But Abbott did insist that a deal could still be salvaged despite his frustration at not being able to bring in a new face before Saturday’s draw at Stevenage.

“It’s not off the agenda – I spent three days trying to do it and I’m disappointed with the way it developed, but I will revisit it and try to make something happen,” he said.

Sources in London have linked the former Leeds loanee Watt with the Blues, but Abbott has other targets on his agenda and said he was wary of adding another inexperienced player.

“I don’t want to have too many young players in one go trying to be blooded,” he said.

United host Preston in the first round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. It is likely to be on Tuesday, September 4.
