Watson's future in limbo

Adelaide United midfielder Cameron Watson is off contract at the end of this season and is unsure where his future lies.

Watson, who has been with the Reds since 2010, has yet to be offered a new deal by the club.

“As of I now, I don’t really know what is happening,” he told FourFourTwo.

“I haven’t been offered anything as of yet. I have just been concentrating on staying fit and playing some games. I have to do what I think is best for my future.”

Watson has played 100 games for Adelaide United but has been restricted to just five appearances this season.

“My couple of injuries may have set me back this year but it’s the first season where I have been injured and it all started from a broken toe,” he said.

"Then I just had a calf injury on the same leg as I broke the toe. The muscles were just deficient from being out for a while and because I was playing catch-up to get fit. I probably rushed the process a couple of times and re-injured the calf.”

Watson, who went through the AIS and stints with Porto and VVV-Venlo as a youngster, has represented Australia at under-17 and under-20 level.

The 27-year old said he has enjoyed his time at the Reds.

“The club and team have been great here,” Watson said.

“We play a style that everyone enjoys but at the moment I’m not playing and what every player wants is to play. I really don’t know what the club is thinking and, as I said, they haven’t said anything to me just yet.”

Heading overseas may be an option for the defensive midfielder, as is joining another A-League club.

Watson still has hope that he may stay on with Adelaide United.

“Overseas is always a possibility but it makes it easier when you are playing,” he said.

"In terms of other A-League clubs … there has been some interest, which is nice to know. Apart from this interrupted season the gaffer has been happy with me. Until they say we don’t require your services then I will be here.

“And obviously on the flip side I need and want to play games, and if that means having to leave, then that may be the case."
